Many scholars are at great pains to interpret and explain the metaphor of the body in the letter to the Ephesians . A Cognitive Interpretation of Discourse Deixis.

Many scholars are at great pains to interpret and explain the metaphor of the body in the letter to the Ephesians correctly. From a reader-response criticism point of view, the notion of a correct interpretation is dubious. Metaphors point to realities beyond themselves. We use them to speak about the invisible, to understand and explain human affairs and the world of God. But metaphors are also rooted in the context of the culture and politics that created them.

The two disciplines in question are linguistics and biblical s-in particular . Sensing this, perhaps, Dawes informs the reader up front (p. 17) that s/he can skip this first part on metaphor theory and go straight to chs.

The two disciplines in question are linguistics and biblical s-in particular, the burgeoning theories of metaphor and ongoing attempts to disclose the structure of argumentation and the contemporary significance of the pericope, Eph 5:21-33.

Fair interpretation necessitates that, in the same spirit by which we evaluate Ephesians’s teaching regarding slaves . Ephesians 5:21–33, as is common throughout Scripture and literature, utilizes the literary mechanism of analogy as a tool for conveying meaning.

Fair interpretation necessitates that, in the same spirit by which we evaluate Ephesians’s teaching regarding slaves, we acknowledge how the cultural and social norms regarding women in the first century underlie the author’s instructions regarding women and marriage. Starting with a solid understanding of the social and historical context is essential to arriving at a balanced and thoughtful interpretation of the Bible.

For a number of compelling reasons beyond the scope of this study, the disputed letters of Paul (besides Colossians and Ephesians, 2 Thessalonians and the Pastoral Epistles, . 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus) are thought by a majority of scholars to imply a church setting which postdates the time of Paul by at least one generation, as in the case of Colossians

This study is an analysis of the argumentation of Ephesians 5:21-33. The interpretation of this passage remains fiercely contested: while some interpreters appeal to this text to suggest that husbands have authority over their wives, others reject its apparently patriarchal ethic.Approaching Ephesians 5:21-33 by way of a discussion of metaphorical language, the present work shows that its argumentation rests upon two very different uses of the 'body' metaphor. One use highlights the unity of wife and husband, while the other underlines the distinction between the partners and suggests that the husband has a position of authority.The tension created by these two uses of the 'body' metaphor implies that neither a simple hierarchical nor a simple egalitarian interpretation of the passage can be justified.
