1. Mansfield, Merrilyn Anne. John the Baptist and the fulfilment of scripture: an exploration of the tradition history .

Degree: 2014, University of Sydney

This dissertation explores three Hebrew Scriptures (Exod 23:20; Isa 40:3-5 and Mal 3:1) that are associated with John the Baptist in the Gospels. These Scriptures are well known within the literature of Second Temple Judaism. They were reused time and again to reflect current events in later eras that were different from the events described in their original contexts. These Scriptures were also reinterpreted in the literature of early Christianity to describe aspects of John the Baptist’s mission. This project outlines how these Scriptures were used by each Gospel author to create their accounts of John the Baptist. Various methodologies have provided the framework within which a detailed exploration of the texts can be conducted and evidentiary data extracted. These methods include source criticism, form criticism, redaction criticism, intertextuality and reception history method, the criteria of cross section and counter-tendency and a note about history’s epistemological fragility. Attention has also been given to the detection of bias. These tools have assisted in determining the common sources that were used by the authors of the Gospels, and in identifying any unique views that the individual authors have provided about John the Baptist. This research uncovered evidence from the earliest stratum of traditions about John. Using this data the next task was to compare the use of these Scriptures in the Gospels, and their use in other time periods, beginning with the original contexts in the Hebrew Scriptures, and tracing a trajectory of reinterpretation through Jewish literature and Christian literature up to 200 CE. The outcome of this research is that certain aspects of John the Baptist’s mission are historical. These aspects include John’s focus on baptism, his request to those engaging in baptism to repent and make behavioural changes, his wilderness locale, his preaching about imminent judgment, his religious criticism of Herod Antipas, and the notion that John was viewed as a real prophet. All these activities that are accepted as historical are also theological, yet many scholars have struggled to reconcile aspects of the historical John with what are commonly regarded as theological constructs of the Baptist and his mission in the Gospels, particularly in light of Jesus’ advent. But John the Baptist remains an historical character, who came preaching a message imbued with theological meaning, within the construct of the Judaisms of the first century. It is therefore historically likely that John the Baptist’s mission reflected the teachings of the Jewish Scriptures. John, like the many other would be prophets of deliverance mentioned by Josephus, appeared in the southern wilderness and preached a message based on certain Scripture texts. Aspects of the historical Baptist’s mission (wilderness, repentance, preparation, and judgment) were directly correlated to the Scriptures that are associated with him in the Gospels. These Scriptures described a voice in the wilderness. They spoke of a messenger of…

2. Michiels, P. "Paulus, Apollos en Efeze" - Handelingen 18:23 - 19:7.

Degree: 2010, Universiteit Utrecht

In this master-thesis we have investigated the question which role and function the person of Paul has in contrast to Apollos in Acts 18,23-19,7, in the context of the whole of the book of Acts. We therefor investigated the main issues in Acts 19,1-7 (Chapter 1) and the parallel text of Acts 18,23-28 (Chapter 2). In the third chapter we paid attention to baptism and the laying on of hands, and investigated some functions of the Holy Spirit related to our purpose. Finally we looked in a more general way to Paul’s stay in Ephesus, which for Luke is a climax of his missionary activity within the book of Acts. The main conclusion regarding Paul and Apollos is that Apollos plays an important role, but as a precursor of Paul, who, according to Luke, makes important decisions concerning baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus, and the necessity to receive the Holy Spirit before getting a leading role in the Ephesian community, which for Luke represents the model of Pauline Christianity.

3. Donahoe, Kate C. From self-praise to self-boasting : Paul's unmasking of the conflicting rhetorico-linguistic phenomena in 1 Corinthians .

Degree: 2008, University of St. Andrews

The thesis, entitled “From Self-Praise to Self-Boasting: Paul’s Unmasking of the Conflicting Rhetorico-Linguistic Phenomena in 1 Corinthians,” examines the rhetorical conventions of “boasting” and self-praise among those vying for social status and honor within the Greco-Roman world. While the terminological options for “boasting” and self-praise frequently overlap, a survey of these conventions demonstrates that the ancients possessed a categorical distinction between “boasting” and self-praise, which oftentimes conflicted with Paul’s distinction. Clear examples of this conflict appear in 1 Cor 1:10-4:21; 5:1-13; 9:1-27; 13:1-13; and 15:30-32, where Paul addresses the Corinthians’ overestimation of wisdom and eloquence, redirects the Corinthians’ attention away from loyalties to specific leaders to loyalty to Christ, redefines the standards by which the Corinthians should view themselves and their leaders, counters the Corinthians’ tendency to engage in anthropocentric “boasting,” and affirms his own apostolic ministry. It is the Corinthian community’s inability to grasp the application of theocentric “boasting” which leads Paul to address certain aspects and values of secular Corinth that have penetrated the Corinthian community. Thus, operating from an eschatological perspective, Paul critiques both the Corinthians’ attitudes and the Greco-Roman cultural values upon which their attitudes are based. Through irony, self-presentation, imitation, differentiating between theocentric and anthropocentric “boasting,” and distinguishing between personality and gospel rhetoric, Paul challenges the secular notions of social status, power, wisdom, leadership, and patronage and exhorts the Corinthians to focus their attention on their relationship with the Lord rather than on improving their social status or on increasing their honor.
