Der Aufsatz untersucht Theorien über Ursprung und Entwicklung der Jesustradition und eröffnet Wege für eine erneute formkritische Erforschung ihrer Überlieferung unter besonderer Beachtung der Erinnerungsdimension. Die Tradition wurzelt in Jesu Tätigkeit als Lehrer und in der Wahrnehmung der traditionsformenden Rolle und des Erinnerungspotentials seiner Worte und Taten durch die Jünger. Die Tradition wurde früh auf paränetische Bedürfnisse hin geformt. Die Erinnerungsdimension erforderte eine Aufbereitung für ihre Darstellung/'Performance' und regte eine narrative Anordnung der Geschichte/Geschehnisse an, sichtbar in den Evangelien als Chreiai , die die Vergangenheit mit der rhetorischen Gegenwart verbinden.

    The journal is concerned with early Christianity as a historical phenomenon. Thereby, "Early Christianity" aims to overcome certain limitations which have hindered the development of the discipline, including the concept of the "New Testament" itself. The journal, then, is taken to cover not only the first Christian century but also the second.

    This journal will not, however, give any special prominence to reception-history or to the second century. The total phenomenon called "early Christianity" comprises a kaleidoscopic range of individual phenomena, including communal structures, social norms, discursive practices, points of conflict, material remains, and much else – far more than just the production and reception of texts. This journal will strive to reflect this multiplicity of contexts, in the expectation of new light on our subject-matter from a variety of angles.

    "Early Christianity" will appear four times a year. Each issue will contain four (or five) articles, at least one of which will be in German, together with sections devoted to new books, new discoveries, and new projects. Every issue will be the primary responsibility of each of the four co-editors in turn, every alternate issue will be devoted to a specific theme.
