Abstract

Sept œuvres d'art célèbres du VIe au XXe siècle (Ravenne, Grunewald, Cranach, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Burnand, Dix), ainsi qu'une création originale du XXIe siècle (Valérie Colombel) autour de la résurrection, sont analysées d'un point de vue historique et esthétique, mais aussi biblique et théologique. Comment ces œuvres peuvent-elles conjuguer des interprétations fidèles des textes bibliques avec des créations visuelles qui souvent s'en écartent ? Parmi ces huit réalisations artistiques, cinq ont été faites par des artistes de confession ou de culture protestantes, ce qui jette un démenti sur le prétendu désintérêt du protestantisme pour les arts visuels. Au final, un passionnant parcours qui fait se croiser art et théologie, autour de l'événement fondateur du christianisme.

Abstract

Jordash Kiffiak offers the first concentrated study of a motif ubiquitous in the miracle stories of the gospels, namely the descriptions of characters’ speech, feelings, physical actions and the like in response to miracles. Conventional wisdom sees the response motif as a means of casting the miracle worker in a positive light. However, the author’s narrative-critical analysis argues that within each gospel the motif is employed creatively in a variety of ways. Responses serve to characterize various individuals and groups, both positively and negatively, sometimes in a more complex manner. They also contribute to the development of the plot, both in the individual episode and in the larger narrative. At the same time, observing that a network of features in the responses is shared among the gospels, Kiffiak argues that there is a common oral tradition behind the miracle stories, originating among the early followers of Jesus in the Galilee and/or Judea.

Abstract

In recent years, there has been considerable debate concerning the origin of divine Christology. Nevertheless, the proposed theories are beset with problems, such as failing to address the evidence of widespread agreement among the earliest Christians concerning divine Christology, and the issues related to whether Jesus' intention was falsified. This book offers a new contribution by addressing these issues using transdisciplinary tools. It proposes that the earliest Christians regarded Jesus as divine because a sizeable group of them perceived that Jesus claimed and showed himself to be divine, and thought that God vindicated this claim by raising Jesus from the dead. It also provides a comprehensive critique of alternative proposals, and synthesizes their strengths. It defends the appropriateness and merits of utilizing philosophical distinctions (e.g. between ontology and function) and Trinitarian concepts for explaining early Christology, and incorporates comparative religion by examining cases of deification in other contexts.

Abstract

"In what sense, if any, can one speak of Jesus' divinity in Mark's Gospel? Traditional approaches to this subject have been preoccupied with questions about historical precedents in the Greco-Roman imperial cult, the intertextuality of the gospels, the status of the so-called intermediary figures, and the strict or flexible nature of Jewish monotheism without a conceptual framework for examining identity uniqueness and unity of identity. In this interdisciplinary monograph, Beniamin Pascut employs a theory from the social sciences to re-evaluate a long-standing debate about Jesus' divinity and authority to forgive sins, arguing that Mark's Jesus is not just a divine being, but one who is included in the identity of the One God."

Abstract

Entre Renaissance et Révolution, la vie de Jésus n'a cessé d'être réécrite par les théologiens européens. Ses contours chronologiques, sa signification ont été interprétés à la lueur de leurs engagements confessionnels. Diffusés en langues latine et française, les récits retrouvés ont mobilisé des dizaines d'auteurs, d'abord religieux, prêtres séculiers et pasteurs, avant d'attirer au XVIIIe siècle l'attention des philosophes. Harmonie ou manuel scolaire, paraphrase évangélique ou traité savant, ils ont été replacés dans les conditions de leur production matérielle. Leur agencement typographique, leurs sources, le choix de certaines images révèlent des stratégies complexes visant à instruire, à convaincre ou à inciter à la prière. Plusieurs indicateurs (témoignages, catalogues et inventaires, comptes rendus) restituent le regard que les lecteurs ont porté sur ces textes. Leur analyse projette un éclairage neuf sur l'histoire du livre, des idées et du sentiment religieux à l'époque moderne.

Abstract

This study takes a Christian perspective on the entire Bible, rather than simply the New Testament. David Wenkel asks: Why did Jesus have to be beaten before his death on the cross? Christian theology has largely focused on Jesus’ death but has given relatively little attention to his sufferings. Wenkel’s answer contextualizes Jesus’ crucifixion sufferings as informed by the language of Proverbs. He explains that Jesus’ sufferings demonstrate the wisdom of God’s plan to provide a substitute for foolish sinners. Jesus was beaten as a fool – even though he was no fool, in order to fulfill God’s loving plan of salvation. This analysis is then placed within the larger storyline of the whole bible – from the Garden of Eden to the story of Israel and beyond. .

Abstract

"This book is a scholarly treatment of messianism in ancient Judaism and Christianity. In particular, and in contrast to other recent treatments, it is a study of what we might call the grammar of messianism, that is, the patterns of language inherited from the Hebrew Bible that all ancient messiah texts, Jewish and Christian, use. It makes the point that all ancient messiah texts are creative efforts at negotiating a shared set of linguistic possibilities and limitations inherited from the Hebrew Bible. The distinguishing features of the book are several: First, breaking with an ideologically loaded tradition, it incorporates both Jewish and Christian texts as evidence for this discursive practice. Second, rather than drawing up a taxonomy of types of ancient messiah figures, it analyzes a range of other more specific issues raised by the texts themselves. Third, it cuts the Gordian knot of the longstanding question of the prominence of messianism in antiquity, suggesting that that question is ultimately unanswerable but also entirely unnecessary for an understanding of the pertinent texts"
