By Troels Engberg-Pedersen
Engberg-Pedersen indicates that Paul's cosmology, now not least his realizing of the pneuma, used to be a materialist, physically one: the pneuma was once a actual aspect that may on the resurrection act without delay at the usual human our bodies of believers and rework them into 'pneumatic bodies'. This literal knowing of the longer term occasions is then traced again to the Pauline current as Engberg-Pedersen considers how Paul conceived in physically phrases of a number primary subject matters like his personal conversion, his
mission, the believers' reception of the pneuma in baptism, and how the apostle took the pneuma to notify his personal and their methods of lifestyles from the start to the projected end.
In constructing this photograph of Paul's international view, an explicitly philosophically orientated kind of interpretation ('philosophical exegesis') is hired, during which the interpreter applies different types of interpretation that make experience philosophically, no matter if in an old or a latest context. For this company Engberg-Pedersen attracts specifically on historic Stoic materialist and monistic physics and cosmology - in preference to the Platonic, immaterialist and dualistic different types that underlie
traditional readings of Paul - and on smooth rules on 'religious experience', 'self', 'body' and 'practice' derived from Foucault and Bourdieu. during this approach Paul is proven to have spelled out philosophically his Jewish, 'apocalyptic' international view, which is still a relevant characteristic of his thought.
The publication states the cosmological case for the author's prior 'ethical' analyzing of Paul in his prize-winning booklet, Paul and the Stoics (2000).
