About this product
- DescriptionIn this groundbreaking study, James P. Hering investigates the theological and ethical motivation that informs the controversial New Testament household codes (Haustafeln) found in the epistles to the Colossians (3:18-4:1) and Ephesians (5:22-6:9). Within most New Testament scholarship, the household code has been regarded as an imported element within its host letter, reflecting either pagan or embarrassingly sub-Christian values. Is the household code merely a d to the pragmatic demands of culture, or can it be understood as a reflection of the author's theological concerns? What can it teach us today? Hering provides a unique analysis of these passages, revealing the Haustafeln in their historical context and examining their theological roots. This book is of vital importance for courses on Christian ethics and New Testament backgrounds.
