Constructing Relationships, Constructing Faces

Full Product Description

Using the method of critical intertextual research, this book analyses the phenomena of hypertextuality and ethopoeia in the New Testament writings against the background of the Second Temple literature, the historical Jesus, and the historical Paul.

The work demonstrates that all twenty post-Pauline writings including the Gospels, like some of Paul's letters, are only loosely related to history. On the other hand, the New Testament writings constitute a logically consistent network of intertextual-rhetorical relationships which have to be properly investigated and interpreted. Only analyses of this kind enable us to understand the internal logic of the New Testament as a whole and the true meaning of its individual works.

Bartosz Adamczewski is lecturer of the New Testament at the Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University in Warsaw (Poland). He published several books and articles on the relationships of the New Testament writings to historical facts and among one another.

Constructing Relationships, Constructing Faces by Bartosz Adamczewski was published by Peter Lang GmbH in January 2011. The ISBN for Constructing Relationships, Constructing Faces is 9783631614822.
