Barclay, J M. (2015). Interpretation, not repetitions on Bultmann as a theological reader of Paul. Journal of Theological Interpretation,9(2), 201-209. United States of America: Eisenbrauns.
Bultmann’s Theology ofthe New Testament is instructive as a theological performance, which goes beyond redescription to theological explication. His reading of?aul illustrates his approach to theological in- terpretation, which is integral to the responsibility of theology to each new generation. Aithough we should now do theology with the NT in a very different form, Bultmann’s challenge remains: to go beyond mere repetition in order to render this text theologically fruitful, and commu- nicable as good news, in our contemporary context.
