Riguardo questo articolo

Neuware - V. Henry T. Nguyen explores the social dynamics of Christian identity in the apostle Paul¿s second letter to the Corinthians. In order to grasp how identity affected social relations in the world of the New Testament, he examines the ancient concept of persona, which has been largely ignored by New Testament scholars and classicists, and the perceptions of social identity and persona by Epictetus and Valerius Maximus. After identifying a large preoccupation with the superficial features of identity in the Graeco-Roman world, the author considers 2 Corinthians to show Paul¿s reaction against the Corinthian Christians¿ adoption of the conventional values of identity that were prevalent in Corinth. The author shows that in order to combat the misconception of Christian identity in the Corinthian church, Paul subverted the Corinthians¿ conventional values by promoting a Christ-like identity. 272 pp. Englisch.

Riassunto:

V. Henry T. Nguyen explores the social dynamics of Christian identity in the apostle Paul's second letter to the Corinthians. In order to grasp how aspects of identity affected social relations in the world of the New Testament, the author examines the significance of the ancient concept of persona for denoting a person's social identity in the Graeco-Roman social world. In addition to describing this social concept, which has been largely ignored by New Testament scholars and classicists, he considers two figures - Epictetus and Valerius Maximus - for their perceptions of social identity and persona in the Graeco-Roman world. By exploring this ancient concept and contributing new insights into Epictetus and Valerius, the author demonstrates the existence of a large preoccupation with the superficial features that expressed identity and persona (e.g. rank, status, and eloquence). He then investigates 2 Corinthians and argues that some of the conflicts in the Corinthian church resulted from the Corinthian Christians' adoption of the conventional values of identity and persona that were prevalent in Corinth. Paul's conflict with the Corinthians is clearly seen in their superficial assessment of his persona as lacking the appropriate credentials for an apostle. The author shows that in order to combat this misconception of Christian identity in the Corinthian church, Paul reacted to the Corinthians' conventional values of identity by promoting and projecting a subversive Christ-like identity, which is a visible embodiment of the dying and life of Jesus Christ.
