This volume offers a unique approach to the history of biblical interpretation, examining the historical, theological, and philosophical presuppositions of select interpreters in order to tease out the complexity of factors that shape one's engagement with biblical texts. Taking seriously the power of biblical texts to shape and address questions common to all humanity, these essays not only provide a window into how the biblical text was read at specific times and places but also suggest fruitful ways to read it today. Contributions in both English and German focus on biblical interpretation in Hellenistic Judaism and early Christianity, nineteenth-century German philosophy, and contemporary biblical theology. The contributors are Harold Attridge, Wilhelm Grb, Stephan Grtzel, Garrett Green, Christine Helmer, Bernd Janowski, Maren Niehoff, Joachim Ringleben, Marvin Sweeney, and Karen Torjesen.Christine Helmer is Associate Professor of Theology at Claremont School of Theology and Associate Professor of Religion at Claremont Graduate University. Taylor G. Petrey is a Th. D. candidate at Harvard Divinity School.ContentsIntroduction: Biblical Theology: Reality, Interpretation, and InterdisciplinarityChristine HelmerPart 1: Historical and Theological InterpretationBiblische Theologie heute: Formale und materiale AspekteBernd JanowskiNew Garments for Biblical JosephMaren R.
