Chapter Summary

The discussion of the early Christian prepositional formulae has an impressive Scandinavian tradition. One of the most influential publications to the topic is Harald Riesenfelds article in Kittels theological dictionary. The phrase dying for someone has been scrutinized by scholars of the New Testament. The chapter discuss Philos exposition of Deuteronomy is of particular interest for the question of the backdrop of the formulae in early Christian tradition. It illustrates, by comparing the Hebrew original and the Greek translation, the use of the παραδιδ ναι terminology in the LXX translation of Isa 53:6,12 itself is the result of the influence of the Greek tradition of delivering someone to a hostile force on the translator of the book of Isaiah. There can be little doubt that the Gospel uses the Greek notion of dying for to give meaning to the death of the Johannine Jesus.
