“The God of Glory”: Explicit references to God in discourses in the Acts of the Apostles (7:2–53; 14:15–18; 17:22–31)

Mein Aufsatz zum Gottesbild der Apostelgeschichte ist unter dem Titel “The God of Glory”: Explicit references to God in discourses in the Acts of the Apostles (7:2–53; 14:15–18; 17:22–31) im Stellenbosch Theological Journal 4,2 (2018), 197–222 erschienen.

Der englische Abstract lautet:

This essay offers insight into Luke’s concept of God by analysing three sections in which God is explicitly a topic of discussion. These sections are Stephen’s apology (Acts 7:2–53), the account of Paul’s and Barnabas’ mission in Lystra (Acts 14:8–18), and the Areopagus speech (Acts 17:22–31). Because these texts share similar motifs, they can be said to constitute an argumentative series. In these sections, Luke provides a coherent concept of God comprised of many motifs from Luke-Acts. The central motif is that God created the world, which results in God’s self-sufficiency. Therefore, a worship with neither sacrifices nor temple is the appropriate response to God as a self-sufficient, transcendent, spiritual, and perfect being that is completely different from every mortal being on earth.
