Abstract

FRANCOIS TOLMIE, D.. Ambrosiaster's exposition of the Letter to Philemon and the rhetorical analysis of the letter. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.2, pp.1-7. ISSN 2305-0853.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ids.v49i2.1843.

In recent times, the study of Paul's letter to Philemon benefitted from the renewed interest in the rhetorical analysis of New Testament writings, in the sense that a large number of rhetorical studies of the letter have been published. These rhetorical analyses of the letter have been done from different perspectives, but thus far, no one has systematically investigated the way in which the fourth-century author, who was later called Ambrosiaster, interpreted the letter in his commentary on the Pauline letters. Accordingly, this article offers an overview of Ambrosiaster's interpretation of the letter to Philemon, and then outlines the contribution that his reading of the letter can make to the rhetorical interpretation of it.
