Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the Colossians letter and oral Pauline tradition. It provides an overview of importance of oral tradition in the environment of the Paul group. The chapter discusses the oral tradition in Hellenistic and Roman times. The relationship between oral and written traditions was fundamentally more complex in ancient times than in the modern writing culture. Tradition of ancient texts, however, shows that the Alexandrians were not successful in principle. The chapter discusses the oral tradition of Paul and the Pauline letters and examines the oral tradition in Colossians letters. It examines the letters of Paul as the only available source of Pauline language and speech to find notes in recorded sermons and discussions. The chapter finally examines the possible recordings of Paul in Colossians tradition. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Colossians letter; Hellenistic times; modern writing culture; oral Pauline tradition; Pauline language; Pauline letters; recorded sermons
