Overview

The letters of James, 1 and 2 Peter, and Jude are among the most neglected letters of the NT. Thus, methodological advances in NT study tend to arise among the Gospels or Pauline letters. But these letters are beginning to receive increased attention in the scholarly community.

Reading First Peter with New Eyes is the second of four volumes that examine the impact of recent methodological advances in New Testament studies of the letters of James, 1 and 2 Peter and Jude. This volume includes analysis of rhetorical, social-scientific, socio-rhetorical, ideological, and hermeneutical methods, as they contribute to understanding First Peter and its social context. Each essay has a similar three-fold structure, ideal for use by students: 1) a description of the methodological approach; 2) the application of the methodological approach to First Peter; and 3) a conclusion identifying how the methodological approach contributes to a fresh understanding of the letter.

Praise for the Print Edition

The value of this collection lies in the way each contributor clearly delineates a particular methodological approach and creatively demonstrates how it can be applied to 1 Peter. No contributor assumes a one-size-fits-all approach to his or her respective methodologies, but rather each acknowledges how models and theories need to be re-appropriated in light of the unique characteristics and context of 1 Peter. As a whole, this volume helps to bring 1 Peter further out of the shadow of Pauline scholarship, exemplifies new developments in Petrine scholarship, and casts light on some possibilities for further application of these methodologies.
