THE PAULINE BACKGROUND OF THE CHRISTOLOGICAL HYMN IN THE EPISTLE TO PHILIPPIANS 2: 6-11

AN INTERROGATION OF THE PATERNITY AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS

  • Cătălin Varga

Abstract




This research tries to explore an insufficient area of romanian biblical studies, and also to offer pertinent solutions. The question of christological hymn paternity it’s inadequately treated, that’s why I started this original research. First I interrogated the most highlighting theories of modern scholars (a pre-pauline composition; an adamic christology; hymn inspired by the Servant of the Lord; an midrash technique; a subsequent composition introduced within the epistle), then I elaborated my own pro-pauline argumentation. Another challenge was the construct of an accurate translation of the hymn, forced by ours precarious translating tradition, that occures many fallacies synonyms.
