Product Description

How did Paul determine ethical and theological truth? Were all believers expected to be able to 'discern the spirits' (1 Corinthians 12.10)? This study shows that discernment must be understood against the backdrop of an extensive hermeneutic, by which Paul inherently relates ethical and theological knowledge. Understanding the will of God requires noetic and existential transformation, in short, the 'renewal of the mind' (Romans 12.2). Munzinger argues that Paul implies a process of inspiration in which the Spirit sharpens the discerning functions of the mind because the believer is liberated from a value system dominated by status and performance. The love of God enables all believers to learn to interpret reality in a transformed manner and to develop creative solutions to questions facing their communities. For Paul authentic discernment is linked to a comprehensive new sense of meaning.

This books investigates Paul's understanding of ethical and theological knowledge, and how to 'discern the will of God', offers insights from philosophy, psychology and sociology as well as from specialist New Testament perspectives, and is relevant to pastors and lay people seeking Biblical guidance regarding difficult decisions.

The Society for New Testament Studies monograph series presents specialized research into all aspects of New Testament textual and historical culture.
