Kurzbeschreibung

J. de Waal Dryden seeks to develop a hermeneutic for 1 Peter that integrates theology and ethics while reading the epistle in the context of ancient epistolary practices. Both these agendas are accomplished by recognizing 1 Peter as a paraenetic epistle, analogous to paraenetic epistles typical of the Greco-Roman philosophic schools. Recent research into Greco-Roman paraenetic literature has demonstrated that both the aims and literary/rhetorical strategies to realize those aims have deep resonances with the aims and rhetorical strategies of NT epistolary literature. The author seeks to further this research into Greco-Roman paraenetic epistles and to apply it to 1 Peter. He takes up with explorations of typical paraenetic strategies and demonstrates how analogous strategies function in 1 Peter.
