More Than A Passover: Inculturation in the Supper Narratives of the New Testamentby Fergus J. King, Thomas Schmeller (Editor), Werner Kahl (Editor)
This work examines whether the theological method currently known as inculturation is found in the Supper Narratives of the New Testament. A methodology is set up in which texts are examined against the backdrop of Graeco-Roman, Judaic and early Christian cultures. This leads to the conclusion that the New Testament writers used a methodology which can be identified as inculturation including, e.g., Judaic practice as a corrective to Graeco-Roman sacramental custom.
