By Bruce W. Longenecker
In Rhetoric on the Boundaries Bruce W. Longenecker explores the way New testomony authors used an historic rhetorical equipment to impact soft transitions, either huge and small. His examine demonstrates how attractiveness of this rhetorical strategy proves decisive for brand new testomony interpretation. Longenecker accomplishes this through studying the proof for chain-link interlocks in numerous historical resources, together with the Hebrew scriptures, Jewish and Roman authors of the Graeco-Roman international, and the Graeco-Roman rhetoricians. He then applies the result of the survey to 15 complicated passages of the recent testomony. In each one case, Longenecker establishes the presence of chain-link interlock and highlights the structural, literary, and theological importance of the rhetorical machine for brand spanking new testomony interpretation.
