THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB: THE TRAJECTORY OF A SOTERIOLOGICAL PARADIGM IN BIBLICAL TIMES

Klaus Nürnberger

Abstract


This article wants to demonstrate that soteriological paradigms found in the Bible emerged and continued to involve in response to changing situations of need. It traces the historical trajectory of the oldest of these soteriological paradigms, the promises to the Patriarch up to New Testament times. Though superseded by more powerful paradigms, such as Exodus and Conquest, the Sinaitic Covenant and the Davidic Kingship, new applications continued to occur in changing contexts. This is why it can serve well as a test case. The article also suggests a possibility of extrapolating the message of the paradigms to modern soteriological concerns.
