Overview

Roskovec and Mrazek have compiled a collection of essays on early Christology in honor of Professor Petr Pokorný, whose interests in early Christianity were wide ranging. Part One deals with Pauline Christology and includes essays on the nature of Paul's Jewishness, the Corinthian controversy, Paul's so-called mysticism, the Christ-in-Paul idea in Galatians, the Dionysian background of Ephesians and the contribution of archaeological evidence when interpreting Colossians, Philemon and Ephesians. Part Two is devoted to the Christological problems in the synoptic traditions. Topics here include the problem of hell in Jesus’ message, the evidence about Jesus outside the Gospels, the birth narrative in Matthew, and the Christology of the Sermon on the Mount. Part Three includes essays on the possible influence of the Enoch traditions on the Johannine concept of the Son of Man, and the Father/Son motifs in the parables. Part Four contains essays on New Testament Christology as found in the creeds, sermons, and Christian life.
