Series:Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für die neutestamentliche Wissenschaft 224

Abstract

The study examines St. Paul’s self-presentation in First Corinthians. It shows the Apostle presenting himself throughout the Letter as a man of wisdom in a community seeking wisdom. The author interprets Paul’s self-presentation in the context of Hellenistic popular philosophy. Since Paul also offers himself to the Corinthian community as a model worthy of personal imitation, he becomes his own “exemplar.”
