Die moralischen Weisungen des Titusbriefs sind herausfordernd und umstritten. Die Beiträge des vorliegenden Bandes versuchen mit neuen Auslegungsmethoden und aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven die Chancen und Grenzen der Ethik des Briefs zu erschließen.
No one can deny that the letter to Titus is about ethics and morality. Though »good deeds« are mentioned several times, the moral of the letter has been deemed highly problematic because of issues pertaining to gender and the social position of women and slaves as well as the believer's attitude with respect to society and government. The letter's ethics have thus either been heavily criticized, ignored or neglected in scholarship.
The present volume explores the ethics in Titus with new methodologies and from different perspectives, including a variety of hermeneutical frames of reading from scholars in different traditions and denominations.
