Image and Glory of God

Full Product Description

In this title, Michael Lakey illustrates the complexities of using biblical materials to shed light upon modern concerns. He specifically addresses the recent evangelical controversy regarding gender role. This hermeneutical case-study illustrates the complexities of using biblical materials to shed light upon present-day concerns. The specific situation addressed is the recent evangelical controversy regarding gender roles. A significant strand of this debate concerns the relationship between gender and the doctrine of God. This proposition is derived from "1 Corinthians 11". Whilst aspects of this argument are criticized, Lakey also argues that questions of God and gender are related. "1 Corinthians 11:2-16" articulates sexual difference using the metaphysical language of antiquity, thereby situating the sexes vis-a-vis each other as microcosms of God and Christ vis-a-vis the cosmos. For Paul, the Church circumscribes that part of the cosmos able to express its creaturely relationship to God. However, modern interpreters arguably cannot share Paul's cosmological and anthropological assumptions.Lakey points us towards forging a solution for how to interpret as "Christian Scripture", a text that invites its readers to assume a stance that is now problematic for many modern Christians. This is formerly the "Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement", a book series that explores the many aspects of New Testament study including historical perspectives, social-scientific and literary theory, and theological, cultural and contextual approaches. "The Early Christianity in Context" series, a part of "JSNTS", examines the birth and development of early Christianity up to the end of the third century CE. The series places Christianity in its social, cultural, political and economic context. "European Seminar on Christian Origins" and "Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus Supplement" are also part of "JSNTS".
