Chapter Summary

This is the conclusion chapter of the book, which discusses two core strategies of the New Testament conversation with the Jewish Scripture. The first strives to establish itself as sharing with the relevant Jewish milieu not only a veneration of Scripture but also current patterns of exegesis. It is this "hermeneutical belonging" that is time and again presented as the leading argument for the truth of either Jesus' or the Jesus movement's preaching. It is upon these shared hermeneutical grounds that the innovations of, inter alia, messianic exegesis of kerygma build. The second core strategy emphasizes instead the basic novelty of the propagated, previously unheard of, exegesis, conditioning its availability on prophetic-like inspiration of the Spirit. It is emphatically this inspiration and not being rooted in accepted hermeneutical patterns that is presented by Paul in 2 Corinthians as the true source of authority.

Keywords: Corinthians; Jesus; Jewish Scripture; kerygma; messianic exegesis; New Testament; Paul
