Zur Theologie des 5. Esra-Buches
Abstract:G. N. Stanton's hypothesis that 5 Ezra should be interpreted as a part of the JewishChristian reception of the Gospel of Matthew in the aftermath of the Bar-Kokhba-revolt is still widely accepted. This article argues that 5 Ezra is better understood in its relation to earlier Ezra materials. 5 Ezra is a radically anti-Jewish, Christian supersessionist reinterpretation of the canonical books of Ezra and Nehemia as well as the Jewish apocalypse called 4 Ezra.

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.
