Instruktioner i frelse: Det pietistiske skoleprojekt og Pastoralbrevene

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

The reform movement at Halle, initiated by August
Hermann Francke at the end of the 17th century had a preference
for the Pastoral Letters: 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus. The
exegetical character and context of these letters were scrutinized,
and guidelines made for how to live a life in the world not of the
world. This article examines the public role of the Bible in Pietism
and how the Pastoral Letters became a vehicle for constructing
pedagogical, moral, devotional and legal advise. Special attention
is allotted to Francke’s exegetical exposition of Titus 2,11–15, conveying
the idea that the present world is a school instructing humankind
in universal salvation.
