This evidence is, however, discounted since many consider the Pastorals to be deutero-Pauline. 67 P. N. Harrison, The Problem of the Pastoral Epistles (Humphrey: Oxford University Press, 1921), 20. INTRODUCTION TO THE TASK 23 2. A more serious challenge to the authenticity of Ephesians comes from its distinctive theological perspective. ”68 Ephesians sees the church to be built on the “foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone” (2:20); Paul considers the foundation to be Jesus Christ (1 Cor 3:11).

63 The failure to maintain this distinction is seen in Kittel’s TDNT. Although the TDNT seeks to deal with the task of NT conceptual history (Begriffsgeschichte; preface to TWNT, vol. 1), the nature of TDNT is a dictionary of Greek words rather than a dictionary of concepts. See the critique by James Barr, The Semantics of Biblical Language (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1961), 206–62. For a study of the lexical term εἱρήνη in the NT linguistic system, see Matthys Klemm, ΕΙΡΗΝΗ im neutestamentlichen Sprachsystem: Εine Bestimmung von lexikalischen Bedeutungen durch WortfeldFunktionen und deren Darstellung mittels EDV (Forum Theologiae Linguisticae 8; Bonn: Linguistic Biblica Bonn, 1977).

Questions that I ask include the following: What is the overall context of the narrative of alienation and reconciliation? What is the role of the apostle Paul within this narrative? What is the function of the church? What are the ethical injunctions? At the micro level, I seek to determine whether similar words and phrases are used with different meanings and nuances. Apart from parallel texts, I also examine material that is unique to Ephesians since such material accentuates the particular contribution and character of the letter.
