Eloisuudesta etäännyttämiseen: Lainaukset retorisina keinoina Paavalin argumentaatiossa

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikelVetenskapligPeer review


The many quotations from Scripture perform various argumentative functions in Romans. However, in scholarly discussion Paul’s diverse ways to use quotations beyond the category of proof have not gained all the attention they deserve. The article examines how modern linguistic theories on quotations could shed light on Paul’s quotations. The theories are illustrated with textual examples from Rom 9–11. The Demonstration Theory of Herbert Clark and Richard Gerrig treats the functions a quotation may perform, and Meir Sternberg inspects what happens to a quotation when it is taken from its original context and inserted into a new one. The final part of the article discusses the application and relevance of these approaches for New Testament studies.
