Fellow Neutestamentlers. I need your help. Do you know of recent published work on the concept of the “image of God” in the New Testament? Could you give me a name and some bibliography?
van Kooten, G. H., Paul’s Anthropology in context : the Image of God, assimilation to God, and tripartite man in ancient Judaism, ancient philosophy and early Christianity (WUNT 232; Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2008).
You may want to check out Interpretation 59:4 (October 2005) 341-391. It appears there are some articles on this topic. They may or may not be helpful.
You are probably aware of BW3’s 2-volume work, “The Indelible Image: The Theological and Ethical Thought World of the New Testament”
– Volume 1: The Individual Witnesses.
– Volume 2: The Collective Witness.
Published by IVP Academic in 2009 and 2010. There’s as “Short List” bibliography at the end of each chapter.
I am a GA for John Kiner (TEDS). While his discipline is Bioethics, his forthcoming book on the image has an incredible bibliography and some great material. I definitely recommend looking for it!
Is 2005 recent enough? J Richard Middleton’s The Liberating Image: The Imago Dei in Genesis 1 (Grand Rapids: Brazos Press, 2005).
