Troubling Texts in the New Testament
Essays in Honour of Rob van Houwelingen
Summary:
This volume offers a collection of twenty-two essays on 'troubling texts' in the New Testament. They are troubling for several reasons, ranging from linguistic problems to a clash of worldviews. Each author studies one troubling text from a New Testament document that is close to their own area of scholarly expertise. Authors explain why they regard the chosen text as troubling, deal with possible textual problems, and highlight relevant historical and/or theological contexts. All essays conclude with a fresh interpretation of the text and a reflection on its contemporary significance.
