Title: Paul's Foolish Discourse
Subtitle: A Reply to A. Pitta
Author(s): LAMBRECHT, Jan
Journal: Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses
Volume: 83 Issue: 4 Date: 2007
This note replies to the proposal of A. Pitta to no longer refer to 2 Cor 11,1–12,18 as “the Fool’s Speech” but the “immoderate periautologia” of Paul. The vocabulary as well as the reasoning indicate that the qualification of 11,22–12,10 as a foolish discourse of Paul should be maintained. Criticism is also brought forward against Pitta detecting in 11,5-6 a propositio and against his peculiar division of the so-called probatio of 11,7–12,10.
