Editorial Reviews

Review

Bultmann's Theology of the New Testament is a major event in the history of biblical scholarship.... It is the culmination of his lifelong work as an interpreter of the New Testament. The work qualifies as a classic in the history of New Testament studies. --Nils Dahl, Yale University

The most significant work of its genre in the twentieth century, Theology of the New Testament is essential for understanding the history and future of biblical theology. The reprint, brilliantly introduced by Robert Morgan, makes available again this stimulating and challenging work. --William Baird, Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University

Bultmann's Theology remains a classic, deserving to be read for its stunning clarity and especially its brilliant exposition of Paul's theology. One need not agree with all of Bultmann's conclusions to profit from this legendary master's knowledge of the New Testament and its context. --Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

Theology of the New Testament
by Rudolf Bultmann

Written in the 20th century,
originally published in two volumes,
but it is perhaps the best presentation of the existential dimensions
of New Testament thinking.

If you would like to explore this school of thought more deeply,
search the Internet for: "Books on Existential Spirituality".

James Leonard Park, existential philosopher.

"Few areas of academic endeavor are so in need of public debunking as biblical studies. The physicist Richard Feynman coined the term "Cargo Cult science" to refer to literary speculation that tries to steal the authority of the physical sciences by using some of their vocabulary and format. Much the same relationship holds between such enterprises as the Jesus Seminar and the methods of serious historians." (John J. Reilly) I couldnŐt agree more, but having said this, the question is still legitimate to ask, who this guy might have been, who affected the course of history in so many ways, mostly unintended no doubt, but still as a catalyst and operative agent who set events in motion? Two answers seem possible: the ÒguyÓ was the fellow who invented the tale, and if we take it from there we look perhaps at a person known as St. John (- but I know I am at odds here with the majority of scholars, including Bultmann, who maintain that John was too late for that.) Or there was really a Jesus slouching about in bast sandals. If so, one has to admit it was one of the best kept secrets in the decades after his death. I shall leave it by that and recommend (I, of all people) a book of consummate New Testament scholarship: BultmannŐs classical ÔTheology of the New Testament.Ò BultmannŐs magisterial tome is the academic sum of a lifetime, continually revised and expanded with every new edition. What he was trying to do, was give an exposition of the teachings in the New Testament, according to their chronological order and function in the canon.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
Reading this book was not an easy task especially when one has been taught that Bultmann was a seven-headed devil. After reading through this massive monument of erudite scholarship, I am happy to report that old Rudolf is not a seven-headed devil as previously reported but a five-headed devil. It is essential that one establish that Bultmann is an existentialist and that his philosophy colors much of his scholarship. It is because of his existentialism that Bultmann makes the mistake of separating faith from history in favor of God who meets each man in his own little history; his everyday life with its daily gifts and demands. One must appreciate Bultmans existentialism for much of the New Testament involves existential decisions- One must choose to follow Christ; one must make a decision about the cross; but in no way does this invalidate or abase the value of history. Bultmann shows his true existential colors when he claims that the sayings of Paul rest on kergyma alone and are not dependent upon past historical facts. It seems that Bultmann has failed to realize that the kerygma is a product of history- the resurrection is not true because the church says it is; it is true because it is an historical fact.
For being an existentialist, Bultmann relies heavily on empiricism. The constant denial of anything supernatural is indicative of this. He is thoroughly objective, discounting the miraculous, while at the same time he is thoroughly existential, denying objectivity. This is the basic contradiction of Bultmannian theology. This can be demonstrated by his discussion of the Spirit where Bultmann puts revelation within the realm of reason. This is not to say that revelation is not inclusive of reason, but contrary to Bultmann, reason is not inclusive of revelation.
