Chiasmus in the New Testament: A Study in Formgeschichte

Front Cover
University of North Carolina Press, 1942 - Bible - 428 pages
This study is devoted to the tracing of the Hebrew literary influence of the Greek text of the New Testament. It discusses specifically one form, the extensive use of the inverted order called chiasmus, a form that seems to be a part of Hebrew thought itself, whether in poetry or in prose. Originally published in 1942.
