A friend of mine has begun looking into the subject of rhetorical questions in Paul’s letters. He is interested in both the background in ancient rhetoric – might Paul have been familiar with what earlier rhetoricians had said on the subject – and in what is involved in translating such rhetorical questions when translating the Pauline epistles today.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this subject, or recommendations for reading on the topic? If so, please do share them in the comments section.
Thank you in advance for your help and input!
