Gospel in Paul : studies on Corinthians, Galatians, and Romans for Richard N. Longenecker by L. Ann Jervis( )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Festschrift in honour of Richard N. Longenecker (author of Paul, Apostle of Liberty, The Christology of Early Jewish Christianity, The Ministry and Message of Paul, Biblical Exegesis in the Apostolic Period, 'The Acts of the Apostles' in The Expositor's Bible Commentary, New Testament Social Ethics for Today, and Galatians, Word Biblical Commentary) is centered on the theme of 'gospel' in Paul. Notable Pauline scholars discuss 'gospel' from five different perspectives: the historical, the theological, the hermeneutical, the rhetorical and the epistolary; each author discusses one of these five perspectives within one part of Paul's correspondence: (1) Gospel in Romans (2) Gospel in Galatians and (3) Gospel in the Corinthian letters. The volume promotes discussion both on methods of reading Paul's letters and on important historical, theological and hermenutical issues
Paul, Apostle of Liberty by Richard N Longenecker( Book )

20 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in English and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul's teachings are vital to the Christian gospel, so the turbulent, long-running debate over how to interpret Paul's message is crucially important. Richard Longenecker's Paul, Apostle of Liberty has long stood-- and still stands-- as a significant, constructive, evangelical study of Paul's theology, especially of the creative tension between law and liberty that runs throughout his thought. When this book was originally published in 1964, Longenecker then presciently anticipated several subsequent debates, addressing many of the same questions that such scholars as E. P. Sanders and Richard Hays did years later. This second edition of Paul, Apostle of Liberty includes a substantial foreword by Douglas Campbell and a lengthy addendum by Longenecker discussing the major developments in Paul studies over the past fifty years.

Biblical exegesis in the apostolic period by Richard N Longenecker( Book )

22 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Nag Hammadi texts, and new Targums has greatly increased scholarly interest in the relationship between the New Testament and first-century Judaism. This critically acclaimed study by Richard Longenecker sheds light on this relationship by exploring the methods the earliest Christians used to interpret the Old Testament. By comparing the first Christian writings with Jewish documents from the same period, Longenecker helps to discern both the key differences between Christianity and Judaism and the Judaic roots of the Christian faith."--Jacket

New Testament social ethics for today by Richard N Longenecker( Book )

9 editions published between 1984 and 1997 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To answer the question of what role the New Testament should play in the formation and expression of Christian social morality today, Richard Longenecker here proposes a developmental hermeneutic, which distinguishes between "dedared principles" and "described practices" in the New Testament writings. With this distinction in mind; he focuses on the three couplets of Galatians 3:28 - "neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female"--Showing how these matters were treated in early Christian thought and explaining their meaning for us today. In so doing, Longenecker lays a hermeneutical foundation for the much larger discussion of Christian social ethics.--From publisher's description
The challenge of Jesus' parables by Richard N Longenecker( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Parables recorded in the Gospels are central to an understanding of Jesus and his ministry, and their teachings form, in large part, the heart of the Christian gospel. Though commonly assumed to be simple, easily understood stories, the parables actually present a number of complex challenges to modern readers hoping to fully grasp their meaning. In this book thirteen first-rate New Testament scholars clear the way to the proper meaning and application of the parables by presenting Jesus' teachings in their original context. Providing a more responsible treatment of the parables than they usually receive in scholarly writings or the popular press, this volume will challenge anew those seeking to live more genuine lives as followers of Jesus."--Jacket
Introducing Romans : critical issues in Paul's most famous letter by Richard N Longenecker( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Introducing Romans, a kind of introduction-ahead-of-time to Richard Longenecker's forthcoming commentary on Romans, is a major achievement in its own right, the fruit of at least fifty years of scholarship on the apostle Paul and on Romans in particular. It can stand alone as an indispensable handbook for anyone venturing to write a commentary of one's own or for anyone who wants to teach or understand that classic letter. Above all, Longenecker succeeds admirably in putting the many issues surrounding Romans in the broadest possible historical context, encompassing not just recent fashions but the legacy of centuries. Seasoned scholars and beginning students alike have every reason to be grateful. J. Ramsey Michaels - Missouri State University."

The road from Damascus : the impact of Paul's conversion on his life, thought, and ministry by Richard N Longenecker( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conversion is intrinsic to the Christian religion. The most remarkable conversion recorded in the New Testament is that of Paul, and most Christians consider Christ's encounter with Paul to be a prototype of Christian conversion generally. This collection of eleven essays gives Paul's conversion a firmer rootage in the biblical materials while also emphasizing personal application. The contributors examine the nature of Paul's Damascus Road experience and the impact of that experience on his thought and ministry, and explore how Paul's experience functions as a paradigm for Christian thought and action today. - Publisher

New wine into fresh wineskins : contextualizing the early Christian confessions by Richard N Longenecker( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New Wine into Fresh Wineskins focuses on the relationships among the early Christian confessions in the letters of Paul and the Gospels and looks at how the New Testament writers contextualized these confessions for their own hearers. The volume also reflects on how Christian confessions are adapted for later cultures and contexts. For example, the same gospel message both tells of the past and promises a future, it both encourages and admonishes, and it both reveals and conceals the mysteries of God. With careful analysis and appreciation for how early Christians understood Jesus in a variety of situations, Longenecker challenges readers with the always relevant truth of the gospel."--Jacket
