You’re writing Cliffs Notes for Karl Rahner!’ I’m yes the writers of Cliffs Notes may say an identical factor approximately their paintings as I do approximately mine. it isn't meant to alternative for interpreting Rahner’s Theological Investigations. to the contrary I clearly desire this reference publication will open his treasure trove of essay either to the coed in addition to to different critical readers of theology. each person accustomed to Rahner’s nice 23-volume Theological Investigations is aware the sequence is tough to exploit since it lacks a key. The titles frequently fail to explain the contents of the essays properly; there is not any cumulative index in English; the present indices on the finish of every quantity are tedious and did not distinguish major discussions of a subject matter from informal references; and wanting wading via a whole essay there is not any strategy to understand speedy no matter if it includes the fabric one is seeking. This ebook makes an attempt to handle those problems.” — From the Introduction.

Rezeption und Wirkung des Dekalogs in jüdischen und christlichen Schriften bis 200 n.Chr.

J. Cornelis de Vos examines the impression and reception of the Decalogue as much as two hundred CE, scrutinizing the models of the Decalogue, and the background of the Decalogue in historic Jewish writings, the hot testomony, and early Christian writings. just about all texts express an interconnection of id and normativity: the Decalogue services as an expression of primary ethical ideas of socio-religious teams. while, those teams increase the Decalogue with normativity—sometimes even increasing on it—to make it a textual content that generates their very own identity.

Der Wirkung und Rezeption des Dekalogs bis 2 hundred n. Chr. widmet sich J. Cornelis de Vos in dieser Studie. Dafür erforscht er zunächst die alten Textzeugen der beiden Dekalogfassungen, um anschließend zu fragen, wie die Zehn Gebote bei antik-jüdischen Autoren, im Neuen testomony sowie in frühchristlichen Schriften aufgenommen wurden. Es zeigt sich eine Verbindung von Normativität und Identität: Der Dekalog gilt zumeist als Ausdruck der moralischen Grundauffassungen sozioreligiöser Gruppen; er wird gleichzeitig von diesen Gruppen mit Normativität aufgeladen – manchmal sogar erweitert – gerade um als Identität stiftend für die eigene Gruppe zu gelten.
Dies ist die erste Studie, die eine detaillierte und durchgehende Geschichte des Dekalogs in der Antike beschreibt.

Rahner maintains this concept holds the key to addressing Protestant and Orthodox objections to the Catholic position on satisfaction and indulgences. Current theology sees punishment due to sin too exclusively as vindictive, extrinsically imposed on us by God’s justice. With an eye to the Fathers, Rahner explores the “living basis” which gave rise to the Catholic theory of temporal punishment: the longer time needed to scrutinize lapsed believers as opposed to catechumens. Its historical genesis sets the stage for moving the theory of punishment out of the realm of the juridical.
