2 Peter, Jude : a new translation with introduction and commentary by Jerome H Neyrey( Book )

22 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jerome H. Neyrey gives us a thoroughly up to date and comprehensive study of two of the most obscure books of the New Testament. Written after the death of Jesus and his Apostles, the Epistles of 2 Peter and Jude offer a glimpse into the turbulent life of the early Christian communities. Neyrey's fascinating study not only provides an entirely new translation of the two texts, but also stirring commentary that takes the reader inside groups located at the very edges of Christianity, in contact with the wider Roman world and Greek culture of the day. Neyrey builds upon the excellent scholarship of the past, and introduces into the discussion factors that were rarely understood or considered in earlier times: the social, political, and economic setting in which the New Testament Epistles were written and read -- the church as a community within the larger context of the vast Roman Empire of the late first and early second centuries. And while these letters are often considered peripheral or marginal to the New Testament, they nevertheless reveal and interpret one of the murkier eras in the life of the church. They reflect the hard times and difficult circumstances of the faithful, beset by treacherous comrades within and malevolent enemies without. But all the while, these documents express the constancy and commitment of those who found salvation and the renewal of life in the one Lord, Jesus Christ. - Publisher

Portraits of Paul : an archaeology of ancient personality by Bruce J Malina( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did ancient persons understand themselves, other people, and the world around them? Is there a marked contrast between their understandings of "self" and "other" and the way modern Westerners define those concepts? Bruce Malina and Jerome Neyrey focus on the figure of Paul to provide a comprehensive investigation of how one man was perceived in the ancient world. Drawing on primary sources from antiquity, as well as lessons from cultural anthropology, the authors help provide a fuller understanding of the person of Paul and his world. By doing so, they offer readers a new, and more balanced, way to approach the New Testament
The Gospel of John by Jerome H Neyrey( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This commentary differs from most others in that it does not attempt to repeat all the critical materials which can be found in the larger, major series. Rather it brings to the interpretation of John, materials more literary and rhetorical in nature. It presents full paragraphs on passages, key terms and major motifs. One might say that the 'big picture' is more important here than exacting detail. Readers will be invited into the gospel by noting its typical literary patterns (chiasms, topic statements and development, patterns of double-meaning words), rhetorical commonplaces and discourse (e.g., 'the 'noble' shepherd'; forensic trials: accusations, defense, verdict and sentence). In particular this commentary brings readers into the cultural world of the gospel by presenting materials such as honor and shame, challenge and riposte, gossip, secrecy, and sectarian character of the group

Honor and shame in the Gospel of Matthew by Jerome H Neyrey( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The pivotal values of the ancient world were honor and shame - the worth one had in the eyes of one's neighbor. Here, Jerome Neyrey clarifies what praise and blame meant to Matthew and his audience. He examines the traditional literary forms for bestowing honor and praise and the conventional grounds for awarding them in Matthew's world. Neyrey argues that the evangelist Matthew was trained in conventional ways, and that his writing employs many of the genres taught in the rhetorical handbooks concerning praise."--Jacket

Give God the glory : ancient prayer and worship in cultural perspective by Jerome H Neyrey( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questo saggio di Jerome Neyrey dedicato alla preghiera nel Nuovo Testamento è interessato a mettere in luce in particolare l'alterità - ossia la diversità culturale - dei moduli espressivi e delle pratiche cultuali nel cristianesimo delle origini. Dal Padrenostro al Magnificat, passando per la preghiera giovannea di Gesù al Padre e prendendo in esame anche le notizie fornite dalla Didachè e dalla Prima Apologia di Giustino Martire, nelle pagine di Neyrey si approfondisce una gran quantità di materiali e di documentazione riguardo al culto e alla preghiera in età neotestamentaria, e al tempo stesso si mette alla prova una nutrita serie di modelli allo scopo di evitare le sabbie mobili dell'etnocentrismo e le trappole di una critica anacronistica. Quello che qui si propone è: fornire testi e lenti nuove all'impresa dell'interpretazione, non per mero gusto della novità ma perché i materiali culturali e i mezzi forniti dalle scienze sociali sembrano gli strumenti che meglio consentono di riconoscere l'alterità del mondo che vide emergere il cristianesimo, e anche di iniziare a vedere le cose come allora le si vedevano

The Gospel of John in cultural and rhetorical perspective by Jerome H Neyrey( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johns Gospel has been studied and evaluated and interpreted constantly by theologians throughout the ages. Can anything more possibly be said? Jerome Neyrey says it can, indeed, by interpreting it in two fresh ways by means of ancient rhetoric and by viewing it in its cultural context. / In order to find patterns and concepts that have a bearing on how to read John Neyrey examines the rhetoric of praise and blame described in the ancient encomium, the Greek commonplace on noble death, rules for rhetorical conclusions, and Jewish background materials. He then uses materials from cultural anthropology, such as the effects of limited good and envy, secrecy, and brokerage. Even innocent topics such as time and space have much to say about interpreting the figure of Jesus. / In viewing John through these two lenses, The Gospel of John in Cultural and Rhetorical Perspective brings the book into clear focus as a truly maverick gospel
