Chapter Summary

The writings of Prof. Joachim Jeremias excel in originality of interpretation, which is the fruit of an intimate knowledge of Jewish literature and provide priceless contributions to exegesis. The author begins this chapter with a warm recommendation to read Jeremias' writings precisely for drawing attention to a rather seriously mistaken view in his latest book. A great deal has been written in recent years about the question of anamnesis, especially in connection with the views put forward by Odo Casel. However, the question that does need to be raised is, whether the new interpretation which Jeremias believes he must give to the words is justifiable. In the first edition of his Abendmahlsworte he considered them to be secondary, born out of Hellenistic ideas. The second edition reveals a change of opinion on this point, as special attention paid to the anamnesis in his treatment of the "Words of Interpretation".

Keywords: Abendmahlsworte; anamnesis words; Joachim Jeremias; Odo Casel
