Chapter Summary

Jesus must be interpreted within the context of Second Temple Judaism, as a Jew communicating with other Jews on Jewish terms. At the same time, there have to be some links between his positions and those of the developing Christian movement, which continuously re-interpreted the Jesus tradition and applied it to new contexts and circumstances. This chapter considers Friedrich Avemarie's article to be an expression of such an outlook. It deals a marginal note on the ghost of Käsemann and a different interpretation of the story of Jesus and the leper. The chapter also deals with a few questions concerning the purity dispute of Mark 7, of which the most important one is about the role of paradosis, "tradition." The references to divorce and Sabbath in Avemarie's introduction suggest that in the case of purity, Jesus should be expected to have interacted similarly with his interlocutors in legal discussions.
