Title: Das Brandopfer der Räuberhöhle
Subtitle: Frühchristliche Stationen der Rezeption der Tempelrede Jeremias (Jeremia 7)
Author(s): SOMMER, Michael
Volume: 102 Issue: 2 Date: 2021
Many early Christians took up the temple discourse of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 7), but the manner in which it was received clearly differed. Texts after the Bar Kochba crisis use Jeremiah 7 to create polemics against Jews sacrificing at the temple and celebrating temple feasts. Although the main purpose of this article is to show shifts in the interpretation of Jeremiah 7 in early Christian literature, it also investigates whether Mira Balberg’s theory of a new understanding of cult in Early Judaism offers a suitable explanatory horizon for interpretations of Jeremiah 7 after 135 CE.
