Contents:
The gospels and canonical criticism -- The parables of the great supper and the wedding feast: history, redaction and canon -- The commands to love God and neighbor: history, redaction and canon -- Father and son in the synoptics and John: a canonical reading -- The Acts of the apostles in canonical context -- Peter, 'son' of Jonah: the conversion of Cornelius in the context of canon -- Romans 1.1-15: an introduction to the Pauline corpus of the New Testament -- The problem of the multiple letter canon of the New Testament -- Ecumenicity and ecclesiology: the promise of the multiple letter canon of the New Testament.
Law and gospel, church and canon -- James and Paul in pre-canonical context -- The apocalypse of the New Testament in canonical context -- Introduction: New Testament ethics -- Ephesus and the New Testament canon.
Summary: This wide-ranging collection of essays provides the reader with a critical introduction to the New Testament as the church's canon. The authors' conviction is that the Bible belongs first of all to the community of believers rather than to the guild of biblical scholars. But that does not make the tools and tasks of modern biblical criticism unimportant. Rather, they are the constructive means by which the scholar discerns the nature of the ongoing conversation between the church and its biblical canon and helps form the church into a community of worship and witness. Whether from a particular.
