If I understand the distinction you are making I would respond that in this literature I think it is probably both.

This may seem off-topic but I don’t think it ultimately is. I posed this question to a biblical scholar recently regarding the sermon on the mount. It seemed as if your summary above may have something to say to it (btw, I’m a fellow Duke seminary graduate (2002)):

It seems to me that many readings (in the tradition and the pulpit) emphasize these as being a type of a-temporal spiritual stance. Is it possible to read them, though, as referring to a temporal stance? What I mean is that, is it possible to read these as the ‘detachment’ any soldier must experience in battle, with the aim being that once the battle is over then you ‘inherit’ the spoils. It seems if we read them this way then resurrection day becomes the goal and Christ is pointing who, today, is ‘on the right side’ (the meek, the humble, etc…). The reason I like this is that it seems to capture the second portion of the sayings (maybe better?): “…they shall obtain; …they shall be satisfied; etc….”. When it is a-temporal it seems these become principles rather than ‘marching orders’ (so to speak).

That’s a very fascinating suggestion re Tabitha! Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I need to ponder this…

Comment on 2013 SBL presentations by Richard Fellows http://www.nathaneubank.com/2013/04/03/2013-sbl-presentations/#comment-128 Thu, 04 Apr 2013 02:28:26 +0000 http://www.nathaneubank.com/?p=133#comment-128 Thanks for that, Nathan. Are you able to post the abstract of your other paper too?

Am I right in thinking that one way that people were rewarded in the present life was by being honored by their fellow believers (1 Cor 16:15-18; 1 Thess 4:12-13)? If “Luke” was a companion of Paul then we might expect them to be aligned on this issue. Is that what we see?

You cited Tabitha. I have argued that she was given her name to honor her for her generosity. This would fit with your analysis, I think. See here:
