Sanctification

(2,676 words)

Author(s): Podella, Thomas | Schnelle, Udo | Marquardt, Manfred
[German Version] I. Old Testament Sanctification, the “setting apart” of spaces, times, objects, and persons to make them sacred (cf. Lat. sacer) is represented in the Old Testament by the verb קדשׁ/ qdš piel and niphal, its antonyms חלל/ ḥll I piel and חל/ ḥl, and the antithesis “clean–unclean” טהר–טמא/ ṭhr–ṭmʾ (with reference to holiness: Lev 11:43ff.; 16:19; cf. Deut 14:3ff.; purity and impuraty). Since YHWH represents holiness per se (Isa 5:16, etc.), sanctification means translating the object in question into the immediate divine realm (cf. the regulati…

Synoptic Problem

(3,774 words)

Author(s): Schnelle, Udo
[German Version] I. Definition The Synoptic problem has to do with the literary relationship between the Synoptic Gospels, to clarify whether and how Matthew, Mark, and Luke are literarily dependent on each other. The starting point is the observation that the first three Gospels largely share the same language and sequence of episodes while also differing on many points. The Synoptic problem is thus one aspect of literary criticism and source criticism (Literary criticism and the Bible) and a pheno…

Baptism

(9,795 words)

Author(s): Fahlbusch, Erwin | Schnelle, Udo | Wainwright, Geoffrey | Leonard, Bill J. | Grethlein, Christian | Et al.
Overview In Christianity, baptism—either by plunging in water or by sprinkling with it—represents the first act of incorporation “into Christ” and into the fellowship of the church. Further acts of incorporation are confirmation (Initiation Rites 2) and the Eucharist. Other religious societies have similar rites (Initiation Rites 1). Jewish proselyte baptism incorporates the baptized not only into the religious fellowship but also into God’s covenant people. This matter is relevant in the dialogu…

Synoptische Frage

(3,303 words)

Author(s): Schnelle, Udo
[English Version] I. Definition Die synopt. F. hat das lit. Verhältnis der synopt. Evv. zum Gegenstand, indem sie zu klären sucht, ob und wie das Matthäus-, Markus- und Lukasevangelium lit. voneinander abhängig sind. Ausgangspunkt ist die Beobachtung, daß die drei ersten Evv. in großen Partien sprachlich und in der Stoffreihenfolge weitgehend übereinstimmen, andererseits sich aber in vielem unterscheiden. Damit ist die synopt. F. ein Teil der Literar-/Quellenkritik (Literarkritik der Bibel) und ein…
