  • Series: Studies in Biblical Theology
  • Publisher: SCM

  • Pages: 94

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This comprehensive study of Paul’s language of “the body” knits together all of his great themes: the body of sin and death, in which man has fallen; the body of Christ on the cross, through which we are saved; Christ’s body, the Church; and the resurrection of the body. Nearly all of the main tenets of the Christian faith are represented here—the doctrines of man, sin, the incarnation and atonement, the church, the sacraments, sanctification, and eschatology. This study presents Paul’s conception of the body as the key to understanding his entire theology.

John A.T. Robinson (1919–1983) was the bishop of Woolwich. A British New Testament scholar, he is the author of many books influential in the development of liberal Christianity, including Honest to God and Redating the New Testament.

Investigate the “demythologization” controversy that rocked the theological world in the middle of the twentieth century. In 1941, Rudolph Bultman proposed that historic and theological claims in Scripture should be separated. According to Bultmann and others, the New Testament writers held to certain supernatural beliefs that were no longer plausible. In this monograph, Ian Henderson presents the contours of Bultmann’s argument and his detractors’ rebuttals. He avoids taking a position, allowing readers to draw their own conclusions.

Ian Henderson is associate professor of New Testament at McGill University in Montreal Canada. He specializes in Hellenistic rhetoric and poetics and synoptic literary criticism.

In this response to claims made in Rudolph Bultmann’s Theology of the New Testament, Reginald H. Fuller explores the presuppositions found in the theology of the early church. Bultmann argued that Jesus’ message was the presupposition of New Testament theology, and not a part of the theology itself. Fuller disagrees, proposing an alternative to Bultmann’s interpretation—one that more fully integrates the teachings of Jesus with those of the early church.

This book accomplishes just that, taking a traditio-historical approach to this influential passage.
