Abstract:

Das Johannesevangelium wurde und wird zumeist als nicht-apokalyptisch angesehen. Wenn man das primäre Anliegen apokalyptischer Literatur allerdings in der Offenbarung himmlischer Dinge sieht, dann lässt Johannes verblüffende Ähnlichkeiten mit jüdischen Apokalypsen erkennen, etwa die Himmelsöffnung, die Offenbarung himmlischer Dinge, den Menschensohn und die Bedeutung niedergeschriebener Offenbarung. Apokalyptische Offenbarung bestimmt ihr Verhältnis zum Gesetz des Alten Testaments in bestimmter Weise, und das vierte Evangelium scheint – ebenso wie die jüdischen Apokalypsen – Gesetz und Propheten so zu interpretieren, dass es an deren wirkliche Bedeutung anknüpft und diese auslegt. Für das Johannesevangelium sind Gesetz und Propheten in der apokalyptischen Offenbarung Jesu, des Messias und Sohnes Gottes, erfüllt und ausgelegt.

    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.
