David Being a Prophet: The Contingency of Scripture upon by Benjamin Sargent

By Benjamin Sargent

This publication identifies events within the New testomony the place Scripture is interpreted as if its that means is dependent upon its writer or time of writing. Focusing upon Hebrews, Acts and the 'Davidssohnfrage' within the Synoptic Gospels, it argues that this 'historical' method of interpretation is a crucial yet missed section of using Scripture within the New testomony.

"Das hohe reflexive Niveau der Beiträge, die intensiven Überlegungen zu verwendeten Begriffen, methodischen Grundlagen und thematischen Zuschnitten sowie die praktische Umsetzung in Detailstudien lassen den Band zu einer anspruchsvollen und anregenden Lektüre werden.

La modernité désenchantée

C'est avec de nouvelles lunettes que les historiens proposent, depuis les années 1980, de rendre compte d'un XIX e siècle composite, hybride, pluriel, désormais " masqué " par un siècle d'interprétations. Un siècle fait de bouleversements profonds, discontinus, inégalement perçus et vécus, mais décisifs.

Is it Jesus or Ps 110:4? ’ The author continues in Heb 7:22– 25 to comment on what Ps 110:4 claims for the priesthood of Jesus κατὰ τὴν τάξιν Μελχισέδεκ as he contrasts the eternity of Christ, established in Heb 7:3 and 7:16, with the Levitical priests who τὸ θανάτῳ κωλύεσθαι παραμένειν. It is after this  The basis of this ζωῆς ἀκαταλύτου is unclear. Walter Edward Brookes, ‘The Perpetuity of Christ’s Sacrifice in the Epistle to the Hebrews,’ JBL 89:2 (1970), p. 207 argues that it refers to a status achieved through the resurrection, reading Heb 5:4– 6 in this light.

77a (‫)בוש לעלם‬, he concludes that the phrase has the same sense that it has in John’s Gospel (Jn 1:9, 6:14 and 11:27).  Westcott, Hebrews, p. 189, Attridge, Hebrews, p. 204, Ellingworth, Hebrews, p. 382 and Lane, Hebrews, p. 186 all associate this verse with Christ as κρείττονος ἐλπίδος without giving detailed reasons for this interpretation. Moffatt, Hebrews, p. 98 and Joslin, Christ and the Law, p. 150, likewise, suggest that the verse relates to the declaration of Ps 110:4. Hay, Glory at the Right Hand, p.

Rooke, ‘Jesus as Royal Priest: Reflections on the Interpretation of the Melchizedek Tradition in Hebrews 7,’ Bib 81:1 (2000), p. 84 ‘There is little evidence in Heb 7 for the influence of such ideas, either as positive models for the portrayal of Melchizedek or as negative concepts against which the writer polemicizes. ’ Even though Joseph Fitzmyer, ‘Further Light on Melchizedek from Qumran Cave 1,’ JBL 86:1 (1967), p. 41 had previously quite cautiously claimed that the traditions behind 11QMelch can be seen in Hebrews 7, the significant characteristics of 11QMelch that he identifies, such as the importance of Jubilee and the stylistic similarity with 4QFlor, make any close relationship unlikely.
