Die Timotheus- und Titusakten und die Leidensthematik in den Pastoralbriefen. Aspekte zur Entstehungszeit und Intention der Pastoralbriefe
Abstract:The essay is connecting the Pastoral Epistles and the apocryphal Acts of Timothy and Titus. In corresponding to the motif of suffering in 1 and 2 Timothy (but not in Titus) the acts say that Timothy died as martyr, but not so Titus. In consequence we suppose that the Pastoral Epistles are written knowing the way of death and a clear longer time after the death of Timothy and Titus.

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.
