In this study, Peter Nagel offers insights into how Paul conceptualised a Hebrew deity in relation to Jesus. The author accesses the cognitive conceptual processes of Paul by focusing on the explicit Kyrios and Theos citations in Paul's authentic letters. The explicit citations allow access to the textual-conceptual world as represented by Hebrew and Greek manuscripts between 300 BCE and 200 CE.
In this study, Peter Nagel provides a deeper understanding of Paul's concept of a Hebrew deity by offering a textual-conceptual and linguistic connection between the Hebrew deity of the Old Testament and Jesus as the Christ of the New Testament. He does so by offering a textual-cognitive analysis of the explicit Kyrios and Theos citations within their literary context in the Pauline literature. He also considers the text-critical variants, alternatives, and discrepancies in the entire New Testament where the term Kyrios and Theos are used. This analysis is done against a broad Hebrew and Greek textual-conceptual backdrop by investigating the most prominent biblical Hebrew and Greek manuscript evidence from 300 BCE to 200 CE.
