Chapter Summary

This presents an overview on the Colossians letter in the context of pseudepigrapha letter literature. It discusses the conditions of ancient pseudepigraphy. One of the conditions of ancient pseudepigraphy is first heard as the ancient education system. The Greco-Roman educational system was divided into three stages: elementary stage in which the students in addition to music and sports reading, learn to memorize and write as well as the basic concepts of arithmetic. The middle stage in which the classical literature as well as the grammar are introduced. The higher education in which a philosophical, rhetorical or medical training was acquired. This higher education reached only a few. The chapter discusses the motives of pseudepigraphical writing. It examines the pseudepigrapha letters in the New Testament. The chapter finally discusses the implications of pseudepigraphical writing for the interpretation. The original text of the chapter is in German.
