Abstract


THE QUESTION OF A NEW TESTAMENT ETHICS: A FEW POINTERS IN THE COURSE OF THE INVESTIGATION

Part one of this article started with a very brief overview of nineteenth and twentieth century viewpoints, going into somewhat detail with regard to the latter. In part two some of the important questions brought forward in the research and partly reflected in part one, were elaborated upon with reference to specific literature. The issues were detailed under the headings of ‘unity and diversity in New Testament ethics’, and ‘relevance’. Under the first the viewpoint of situation ethics was discussed, with brief reference to ‘Mitte’ and ‘proprium’.  Under the second the importance of eschatology was pointed out, but more space was devoted to social ethics, leading amongst others to liberation ethics; the questions of normativity and Christian freedom were touched upon; and finally the very important aspect of ecology was placed on the agenda, with reference to the excellent article by Grässer (1979), on creation ethics.
