Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the Colossians letter and the impact of the 'Pauline school'. The Colossians letter is often referred as a product of "Paul School". The phenomenon "Paul school" is limited to the period of pseudepigraphical Paul's letters. Accordingly, the collection and reference to the Pauline Epistles is seen as constitutive of the work of the "Paul School". In fact, the term "school" describes various phenomena of antiquity. To understand the purpose and intention of the Colossians letter, the genesis of the letter had to be examined more closely. The Pauline Epistles often take oral discussions and sermons. The Colossians letter turns out to be strongly influenced by Jewish wisdom tradition. The influence of the Pauline tradition on the Colossians letter causes fewer changes to the traditional image of Paul. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Colossians letter; Jewish wisdom tradition; Paul's letters; Pauline epistles; Pauline school
