The contributions in this volume are the result of an international symposium held at the University of Tübingen in October 2018. They examine the Lord's Prayer in conversation with Jewish traditions, relate it to New Testament theology, and explore its reception history in early Christianity.
The Lord's Prayer belongs at the core of Christian tradition. There is hardly any text of the New Testament more frequently cited in liturgical, group, and private settings. The contributions in this volume are the fruitful result of an international symposium held at the University of Tübingen in early October 2018. The volume examines the Lord's Prayer in conversation with Jewish tradition, situates it in relation to New Testament theology, and explores its reception history in early Christianity. Thus, the articles in this volume demonstrate the richness of the Lord's Prayer and its relevance for both Jewish and Christian identity.
