Abstract

VAN RENSBURG, Fika Janse. Constructing the economic-historic context of 1 Peter: Exploring a methodology. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2011, vol.67, n.1, pp. 00-00. ISSN 0259-9422.

This article explored a methodology to construct the economic-historic context of the addressees of 1 Peter, which could serve as basis for an economic interpretation of 1 Peter and other New Testament books. After discussing 1 Peter as letter, external sources were used to construct the economic-historic context of the addressees of 1 Peter. This construction was then refined utilising the letter itself, by identifying, categorising and interpreting the economically relevant portions of 1 Peter. Finally, the economic-historic context of the addressees of 1 Peter was concluded and the method summarised.
