Die Metamorphose des Gottessohns. Zum epiphanialen Motivfeld in Phil 2,6–8


Vollenweider, Samuel (1999). Die Metamorphose des Gottessohns. Zum epiphanialen Motivfeld in Phil 2,6–8. In: Mell, Ulrich; Müller, Ulrich B. Das Urchristentum in seiner literarischen Geschichte. Berlin and New York: Walter de Gruyter, 107-131.

Abstract

The metamorphosis of Christ in Phil 2:6f is characterized by typical epiphanic motives, testimony of which can be found primarily in Greek and Roman mythology (hidden epiphany). Looking at the strong OT/Jewish background of verse 9–11 with its connotations of heavenly kingdom concepts, the author shows that there is indeed more reason to interpret the metamorphosis of verse 6f in terms of Hellenistic Jewish epiphanies of angels. Thus Phil 2:6–11 points to an early Greek-speaking Jewish-Christian scene with a strong emphasis on an angelomorphic Christology. The epiphanic notion has been radically transformed into a conception of kenotic incarnation.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
