Description:

Ivar Vegge shows that the ancient Mediterranean world was especially sensitive to idealized praise and blame or threats as hortative means. This is reflected in the pedagogy of the moral philosophers (psychagogy) and in the letter-writing tradition (epistolography), and to some extent also in the rhetorical tradition. Paul utilizes this method in 2 Corinthians.Developing a suggestion by R. Bieringer, the author starts by arguing that 2 Cor 7:5â"16 is a highly idealized description of reconciliation (i.e. praise) where the aim is to exhort to full reconciliation. He then interprets a number of idealized expressions of confidence in the addresseeâ"spread throughout the letterâ"as supporting the appeals for reconciliation with Paul and the collection. 2 Cor 10â"13 resembles the harsh tone and aim of Paul's ?tearful letter?â"i.e. sorrow leading to the Corinthians' repentance and finally to reconciliation with Paul (cf. 2 Cor 2:1â"4; 7:5â"12), as claimed by partition theories (Hausrath-Kennedy, Weiss-Bultmann and Schmithals-Bornkamm)â"but is not itself the ?tearful letter.? Paul simply reuses the same strategy.The apologetic elements in the letter repeatedly lead up to and substantiate the appeals for reconciliation. This leads to the conclusion that 2 Corinthians is one single letter about reconciliation. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Ivar Vegge argues that Paul, in line with ancient moral philosophers, letter-writers, and rhetoricians, used idealized praise in 2 Cor 1-9, and particularly in 2 Cor 7:5-16, and blame or threats, especially in 2 Cor 10-13, to promote reconciliation between the Corinthians and Paul as apostle.

Book Description Mohr Siebeck Gmbh & Co. K Mrz 2008, 2008. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Ivar Vegge shows that the ancient Mediterranean world was especially sensitive to idealized praise and blame or threats as hortative means. This is reflected in the pedagogy of the moral philosophers (psychagogy) and in the letter-writing tradition (epistolography), and to some extent also in the rhetorical tradition. Paul utilizes this method in 2 Corinthians. It is argued that idealized praise is manifested in the description of reconciliation in 2 Cor 7:5-16 in order to attain full reconciliation, and in numerous expressions of confidence in the addressee that support various appeals to reconciliation (and/or collection). The harsh and threatening tone in 2 Cor 10-13 is intended to correct the Corinthians, in the hope of achieving reconciliation. The apologetic elements in the letter repeatedly lead up to and substantiate appeals to reconciliation. 2 Corinthians is, therefore, one single letter about reconciliation. 445 pp. Englisch.
