New Testament Interpretation Through Rhetorical Criticism

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter starts with a brief description on how the New Testament came about after the Old Testament and what the consequences behind that establishment were. The four important Gospels of Mark, Luke, Matthew, and John and their contribution towards rhetorical standards are examined. The levels of styles related to these Gospels i.e. the elegant style of Luke, the elevated style of John, the forceful style of Matthew, and the plain style of Mark are highlighted here. The descriptions of the rhetorical unit of each Gospel are addressed. The latter part of the chapter covers the four great rhetorical problems involved in the Gospels.

Keywords:   New Testament, Old Testament, Mark, Luke, John, Matthew, rhetorical unit
