    Das Seminar führt in das exegetische Erarbeiten von neutestamentlichen Texten ein. Anhand ausgewählter Beispieltexte werden die einzelnen Methodenschritte vorgestellt und eingeübt.

  • Bible Studies, New Testament

    Die Übung widmet sich der Erschließung der neutestamentlichen Schriften, wobei deren Aufbau und Inhalt im Vordergrund stehen werden. Darüber hinaus sollen erste historische und theologische Fragen diskutiert werden.

  • Dying and Death in New Testament and Apocryphal Texts

    In this course, we will read and discuss texts of the New Testament and apocryphal texts with a special focus on the fascinating subjects of dying and death. What thoughts and ideas regarding to these topics are found in Early Christianity? In which way are situations of death described? What happens to the body, what happens to the soul? What about the afterlife? But we will not only focus on the content of the texts but also on the English language itself.

  • "Why on earth did anyone become a Christian in the first three centuries?"

    In this course, we will read and discuss Larry W. Hurtado’s book "Why on earth did anyone become a Christian in the first three centuries?". Reading the book, we try to find reasons individuals might have had to become a Christian even though this choice also meant to hazard possible negative consequences. But while reading the book, we will not only focus on its content but also on the English language itself. In this course, English is our language of instruction.

  • The Writings of St. Paul – English Language Course

    In this course, we will read and discuss parts of “The Writings of St. Paul”, an anthology edited by W. Meeks and J. -Fitzgerald. We will read a selection of Paul’s letters in an English translation, we will focus on depictions of Paul from the early church, as well as on Pauline Christianity and on modern approaches to Paul and his letters. But we will not only concentrate on the book’s content but also on the English language itself.
