Paideia: Commentaries on the New Testament is a series that sets out to comment on the final form of the New Testament text in a way that pays due attention both to the cultural, literary, and theological settings in which the text took form and also to the interests of the contemporary readers to whom the commentaries are addressed. Each commentary deals with the text in terms of larger rhetorical units; these are not verse-by-verse commentaries. This series thus stands within the stream of recent commentaries that attend to the final form of the text.
Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by
— attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
— showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
— commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
— focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text
— making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format
Paideia commentaries pay deliberate attention to this extratextual repertoire in order to highlight the ways in which the text is designed to persuade and move its readers. Each rhetorical unit is explored from three angles: (1) introductory matters; (2) tracing the train of thought or narrative flow of the argument; and (3) theological issues raised by the text that are of interest to the contemporary Christian. Thus, the primary focus remains on the text and not its historical context or its interpretation in the secondary literature.
