Stephen’s Speech (Acts 7:2-16) and Jewish Exegetical Traditions

image of Novum Testamentum

Abstract In the conclusion of his recent article “Acts and the Fragmentary Jewish Authors” (NovT 53 [2011] 22-51), C.R. Holladay suggested the need for further work in comparative hermeneutics in relation to the Acts of the Apostles. In response to Holladay’s call, this article explicates the use of Genesis in Acts 7:2-16 in light of the use of Genesis in select Jewish texts, from the LXX to those from the rabbinic period, focusing particularly, though not exclusively, on the impact of certain exegetical traditions found in Jubilees, Philo’s De Abrahamo, and Josephus’ Jewish Antiquities.
