Abstract:

"George H. van Kooten offers a radical contextualization of Paul's view of man within the Graeco-Roman discourse of his day. Paul's Jewish terminology is compatible with reflections of Graeco-Roman philosophers on man, and is supplemented with Platonic concepts such as 'the inner man.' Paul's anthropology, which calls for inner transformation and is universally applicable, criticizes the superficial values of the sophistic movement, and offers a strategy to overcome ethnic tensions."--Jacket.
