Example text

I have discussed several of these patterns elsewhere. " T h e r e are a number ofinstances in Paul's letters where he discusses one point, digresses to a second point, and then closes the discussion with a recapitulation of the first point. The history of the various partition theories for 1 Corinthians is in the main the history of the failure to recognize this habit. For example, Paul discussed the eating of meat offered to idols in 1 Corinthians 8, he then discussed the rights of an apostle in 1 Corinthians 9, and then in 1 Cor.

The Problem T h e basic problem is the attribution of the passage. Two types of evidence incline many scholars to believe that Paul could never have written the words quoted above. Paul's Attitude Towards Judaism T h e accusation that the Jews "killed . . the Lord Jesus," that they "displease God," that they "oppose all men," that they "fill u p the measure of their sins," a n d that "God's wrath has come u p o n them" has 21 Paul arid the Gospels 22 no precise parallel in the other writings attributed to Paul.

A, Pearson, "1 Thessalonians 2:13-16: A Deutero-Pauline Interpolation," HTR 64 (1971), 79-94. , 83. , 91. Paul arid the Gospels 26 Paul's letter composition. Moreover, he recognizes that any theory of interpolation must show two things: (1) not only that the passage in question does not connect to its context, but also (2) that the context reads more smoothly with the passage removed. Thus he discusses the way in which I T hess. 2:12 prepares for 2:17-20. H e may be right. Nevertheless, the solution is not a comfortable one.
