Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
Book Condition: New
The doctrine of common priesthood has been an integral part of Protestant ecclesiology and clerical theology since the Reformation. It owes its prominence to the reception history of only a very few passages in 1 Peter and the Apocalypse of John. Can this evidence bear the burden of proof imposed on it? How can we understand how people were given the title of priest although in view of their parentage, their education or role in life they were not priests? Based on the status of priests and their functions in Greco-Roman antiquity and in the Old Testament, Volker Gäckle traces the conflicts surrounding the priesthood, temple and cult in the various schools of thought in Judaism during the Second Temple in order to understand what Jewish-Christian authors meant by applying the priest metaphor to early Christian communities.

Synopsis: English summary: The doctrine of the universal priesthood has been an integral part of Protestant ecclesiology and clerical theology since the Reformation. Its significance is based on very few historical records from the First Epistle of Peter and the Book of Revelations. However, do these records really provide the evidence that has been ascribed to them? How should we interpret conferment of the priesthood on people who were priests neither by origin, nor by training or social function? Based on the status and role of priests in Greco-Roman Antiquity and in the Old Testament, Volker Gäckle illustrates conflicts surrounding the priesthood, the temple and religious ritual in the various movements that were part of Judaism during the Second Temple Period, in order to understand what Jewish-Christian authors mean when they apply the metaphor of priesthood to early Christian communities.
German description: Die Lehre vom Allgemeinen Priestertum ist seit der Reformationszeit fester Bestandteil protestantischer Ekklesiologie und Amtstheologie. Sie verdankt ihre Prominenz der Wirkungsgeschichte nur weniger Belege im 1. Petrusbrief und der Johannesapokalypse. Können diese Belege die ihnen aufgeb|rdete Beweislast tragen? Wie können wir die Übertragung des Priestertitels auf Menschen, die weder gemäss ihrer Herkunft, noch gemäss ihrer Ausbildung oder Funktion Priester waren, verstehen? Ausgehend vom priesterlichen Status und den priesterlichen Funktionen in der griechisch-römischen Antike und im Alten Testament zeichnet Volker Gäckle die Konflikte um Priestertum, Tempel und Kult in den verschiedenen Strömungen des Judentums in der Zeit des Zweiten Tempels nach, um zu verstehen, was judenchristliche Autoren mit der Applikation der Priestermetapher auf die fr|hchristlichen Gemeinden beabsichtigen.
