In der Forschungsgeschichte werden die Wundmale des auferstandenen Jesus wie in der künstlerischen und kirchlichen Tradition für offene Wunden gehalten. Der vorliegende Artikel argumentiert vor dem Hintergrund antiker Medizin und philologischer Beobachtungen, dass die Wundmale besser als Narben zu verstehen sind. Unabhängig von der Frage, ob Thomas Jesus nun berührt hat oder nicht, verstärkt sich auf diese Weise die Einsicht, dass die Szene der Bestätigung der Identität des auferstandenen Jesus dient und dass sie Beweis für den Glauben des Johannes an die körperliche Auferstehung ist.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
