Book notes: Paul’s Triumph

Paul’s Triumph: Reassessing 2 Corinthians 2:14 in Its Literary and Historical Context
by Christoph Heilig.

Don’t let the title fool you. While it appears to be a relatively standard New Testament studies monograph (and there’s nothing wrong with that), this book is also of great interest to Greek linguists as well, focusing primarily on the semantics and syntax of θριαμβεύω. Heilig covers lexical semantics, transitivity & argument structure in addition to the more usual research on historical and cultural research we usually see in New Testament.

If only more NT studies research projects cast their nets this widely, the field would be in a better place.

Christoph Heilig also contributes to the Zürich New Testament Blog: Scholae Tigurinae studia ad Novum Testamentum.
