Title Jewish-Christian interpretation of the Pentateuch in the pseudo-Clementine homilies / Donald H. Carlson
Published Minneapolis : Fortress Press, ©2013


Description 1 online resource (1 PDF (xvi, 250 pages))
Contents Abbreviations -- Overview of previous scholarship -- The rejection of allegorism -- The theory of the false pericopes -- The true prophet's teaching as an exegetical criterion -- Oral tradition as an exegetical criterion -- The harmony criterion -- Summary and conclusion
Summary The pseudo-Clementine writings are one of the most intriguing and valuable sources for early Jewish Christianity. They offer a second- or third-century polemic against the form of Christianity that eventually won out, the Gentile-majority, law-free Christianity that took Paul as its champion. Carlson's interest here is in the highly unusual theory expressed in the Homilies that the Pentateuch is saturated with "false pericopes," and that the teaching of Jesus, the "true prophet," is the criterion for establishing what the Pentateuch really means
