|Title:||Foundations in Exegesis: Eichrodt and Barth on Genesis 1:26-27..|
|Authors:||Kelley, Owen Murray|
|Advisor:||Combs, A. E.|
|Abstract:||<p>The thesis considers the complex relationship between contemporary Old Testament studies and theological interpretation of the Bible, by focusing upon a comparative exposition of the accounts of Genesis 1:26-7 given by Walter Eichrodt and Karl Barth. This relationship consists in a certain impasse, a certain failure on the part of each discipline to take the other seriously, a certain conflict of interest concerning the proper task of each discipline. The examination of the foundations of each exegesis illustrates the nature of the conflict and leads to a consideration of the wider implications involved in the use of each method. Ultimately, these implications demonstrate that the adoption of specific foundations in exegesis depends directly upon a prior estimation of the nature of the biblical documents. It is the goal of the thesis to make this point.</p>|
