Chapter Summary

A feature that has struck most commentators reading Justin's exegetical expositions is his remarkably bad organization of the material. One often searches in vain for a coherent line of argument, because Justin allows himself to follow all kinds of digressions, and sometimes seems to follow rather far-fetched associations. The most recent large-scale treatment of the subject is Prigent's monograph on Justin and the QT. His analysis again probes behind Justin's present disposition in search for the organization of the Syntagma. This chapter presents the intricate interplay between an inherent structure of the quotation material employed, and Justin's own shaping of the material. This presupposes that Justin employed source material which had a certain structure and that this structure not always coincides with the plan he imposed upon the material. This presupposition is well established by von Ungern-Sternberg's, Bousset's and Prigent's analyses.
