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

J. Cornelis de Vos examines the influence and reception of the Decalogue as much as 2 hundred CE, scrutinizing the types of the Decalogue, and the historical past of the Decalogue in historical Jewish writings, the hot testomony, and early Christian writings. just about all texts convey an interconnection of identification and normativity: the Decalogue features as an expression of basic ethical ideas of socio-religious teams. whilst, those teams improve the Decalogue with normativity—sometimes even increasing on it—to make it a textual content that generates their very own identity.
This is the 1st research that offers an in-depth and non-stop research of the early heritage of the Decalogue.

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.

Sample text

Its chief glory was a temple to the Emperor, which it had been privileged to build in honour of its loyalty to Rome. Around this temple, and along the shores of the gulf, stretched a well-arranged and beautiful city, guarded by strong fortresses, and busy with the exchange of commerce. Pergarnurn claimed pre:-eminence as the oldest and the 'royal' city of the province; · it was still the political capital of Asia. It had a lofty and imposing situation, adorned with sumptuous buildings, but lay off the main track of the traveller.

Though not a leading city of Asia, it was a rich commercial centre renowned for its dyes, with famous trading-guilds that fostered idolatry and sensuality. Sardis rose like a fortress on a ledge of rock overlooking a mountain glen. ·It was one of the fairest and most promising cities of Asia; but its boasted impregnable citadel has twice been captured whilst its people slept. P hiladelphia was surrounded by mountains, rising eastwards to form the plateau of Central Asia. Bare and volcanic rocks broke up the rich green stretches of country.

T. DURING THE 1st. , Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, follows the route the bearer of the letter might naturally take in travelling from Rome, and desiring to touch as many Churches as possible on his circuit. In all probability the messenger was Silvanus of the Epistles (Silas of the Acts). The second Epistle formed a sequel to the First; though it is argued, on the contrary, that the difference of style and the absence of specified address, make the names of the writer and readers an open question.
