About this Item

Neuware - Thomas R. Blanton, IV seeks to reconstruct the social contexts in which two discourses that involve the 'new covenant' were written, and to which they responded. He first examines the Damascus Document from among the Dead Sea scrolls, arguing that this discourse was crafted in order to delegitimate Hasmonean claims to the high priesthood and Pharisaic claims to authority in legal interpretation. In the second half of the book, the author argues that Paul crafted his discourse on the new covenant in opposition to an ideology that was espoused by a rival group of missionaries, according to which, under the conditions of the new covenant, the spirit of God was thought to empower individuals to follow the Torah with perfect obedience. In opposition to this view, Paul argued that law and spirit were antithetical terms. Thus, he attempted to bolster the credibility of his own law-free message. 271 pp. Englisch.
