Chapter Summary

The famous and much-talked-note of Papias on Mark has examined recently by Mr Stauffer. In his essay "The Methurgeman of Peter" he has tried to show that the Papias fragment about Mark everywhere does not reveal the rabbinic terminology and symbolic language, and consequently a decisive interpretatio Semitica urge, in contrast to Dibelius and others, who felt the spirit of Hellenism. The author collects the lyrics not only mentioned by Mr Stauffer, but also many others. He explains two points: the formula is found in the ancient Egyptian literature and they also often encountered in Greek texts, which are unaffected by the AT, for example in Plato and Plutarch in international treaties. The author offers some general comment to distinguish between an interpretatio Semitica and an interpretatio hellenistica. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: ancient Egyptian literature; Greek texts; interpretatio Semitica; interpretatio hellenistica; Papias fragment
