Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with exegetical, religion historical and theological study of Paul's ascent to heaven according to 2 Corinthians 12.1 to 10 to address the questions asked by the study, when the study is historically classified in the context of the genre "Apocalypse". The question of the connection between 2 Corinthians 1-9 and 10-13 and the question of the identity of the "enemy" in the exegesis of history of religion and theology play an important role in the study. Furthermore, Paul speaks about temptation and a three-time request to the Lord that must be followed by one or more revelations of the Lord well, otherwise he mentioned in a different context. The answer to the question of what Paul has experienced depends on religion from psychological analysis. Characteristics of the genre "Apocalypse" are important in the theology of St. Paul. The original text of the chapter is in German.
