Rudolf Bultmann was the most significant New Testament scholar we have known in the twentieth century. This study approaches his work arguing that his theology can only be understood correctly as an interpretation of the New Testament. Naturally it is a twentieth-century interpretation involving complex hermeneutical questions. But it is the New Testament which provides the subject matter to. h~s critical use of the Bible and his theological conc1usion~: for the present, we need only note that precisely at the time in which Bu1tmann was coming to question the liberal tradi tion, he published The Histo'ryof' the synoEtic Tradition () - the classic text of form-crItIcIsm. T Is bOok.

  These books, however, did fall into two general classes: (1) Those treating chapters 4–20 as history, and (2) those treating this portion as prophecy. Since then very many notable works on Revelation have been written and with a noticeable increase of certainty as to interpretation . The School of Antioch was the bright spot in the ancient world, so far as biblical interpretation was concerned. The biblical interpreters associated with this school insisted that the Bible be interpreted in the light of the literary form and historical situation of a particular passage.

The hermeneutic of Rudolf Bultmann, to which the Marburg theologian gave definitive expression in this collection of essays, is extraordinarily important not only for study of the New Testament but also for theory of interpretation in general. Bultmann's central thesis is that, in order for utterance to attain meaning, it has to be s: There are four major schools of interpretation for the book of Revelation. Let’s consider each: 1. Futurist (Occurs in the future) The futurist school holds that everything after chapter 4 is yet to happen in the future. Under this view, the book of Revelation is mostly a book .

Rudolf Bultmann, leading 20th-century New Testament scholar known for his program to “demythologize” the New Testament—i.e., to interpret, according to the concepts of existentialist philosophy, the essential message of the New Testament that was expressed in mythical terms.

Bultmann, the son of a. Joshua W. Jipp (PhD Emory University) is Associate Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is the author of Divine Visitations and Hospitality to Strangers in Luke-Acts: An Interpretation of the Malta Episode in Acts (Brill, ), Christ is King: Paul's Royal Ideology (Fortress, ), and most recently Saved by Faith and Hospitality (Eerdmans, ).

Isn’t it possible to have one school of interpretation. Do you know its history & how those schools of interpretation arose. Answer: I am attaching a detailed outline titled “Hermeneutics.” It is a set of notes on how to interpret the Bible.

It does include a little bit on the history of these “schools” of interpretation. A second type of biblical hermeneutics is moral interpretation, which seeks to establish exegetical principles by which ethical lessons may be drawn from the various parts of the Bible. Allegorization was often employed in this endeavour.

The Letter of Barnabas (c. ce), for example, interprets the dietary laws prescribed in the Book of Leviticus as forbidding not the flesh of certain. Both scholars are trying to 'jolt' readers into seeing the Bible clearly - as a book from out of which the Word of God speaks directly to them.

Bultmann does this with some provocative, even shocking suggestions to get through people's resistance; Barth does this through paradoxes that force you to think in order to make sense of them.

Old Testament books of the Bible. The Old Testament includes 39 books which were written long before Jesus was born. The first five books of the Bible are called the Torah, or the Law of Moses.

A philosophical exploration of the meaning of life—with a surprisingly nihilistic tone for the Bible. This compilation of essays contains many of Bultmann's most basic theological insights.

I would recommend reading the book in the order detailed by the editor in the preface as the latter essays contain some of Bultmann's more foundational concepts which help in fully understand his more famous, yet complex, essays like "The Problem of Demythologizing."Reviews: God who works in man's personal history.

For biblical man, knowledge is primarily the auditory model and the internalized response to the word which "is spoken to and within the historical existenc man."e of 12 Because the word is received in the world of interiority and because man's response to this word constitutes his Dasein, the New Testament.

Rudolf Bultmann -- who died on J at the advanced age of was the last of the theological giants who grew up in the universities of the Kaiser’s Germany (he began to study theology in at 19), and the last of the prophets who struggled to hear the word of the Christians’ Lord after what had happened in Teaching New Testament at Marburg University from to It is difficult to overestimate the singularity of Rudolf Bultmann.

Bultmann's Theology of the New Testament changed the course of New Testament interpretation and has continued to influence the field until today. As ambitious in scope as it is consistent in method, Bultmann's volume asks and provides answers to the big questions.

Bultmann also found a way to wed a sober-minded commitment to /5(3). A cursory study of the history of biblical interpretation will show that a concerted effort to interpret scripture in its historical/cultural context is relatively new. It is a somewhat intense process that necessitates becoming familiar with the culture and language usage of the day.

From the publisher: From to Rudolf Bultmann offered an introductory course in theology, the so-called theological encyclopedia, which he continually revised and refined. The work, finally published posthumously, shows the early, combative Bultmann struggling with inherited tradition and critical of Schleiermacher, Brunner, and Troeltsch.

Chris Tilling recently posted a nice series about the great German theologian Rudolf expresses his appreciation for Bultmann’s contribution, but he notes (in a comment) that his greatest complaint against Bultmann is the latter’s interpretation of resurrection.I understand what Chris means, and I agree that Bultmann’s view of resurrection is not without its problems.
