Re: Lk 11:8 Whose ANAIDEIA?

Date: Mon Oct 09 1995 - 18:32:41 EDT


The young seminarian has followed Jeremias, The Parables of Jesus, on this

Jeremias points out that <<tis ex Jumwn>> begins questions that expect a NO!
 Can you imagine such a thing!!! He concludes, "The parable is not concerned
with the importunity of the petitioner, but with the certainty that the
petition will be granted.

Bernard Brandon Scott, Hear Then the Parable: A Commentary on the Parables
of Jesus [Fortress, 1989], 88-89, concurs, writing, "Anaideia means
'shamelessness,' and this is it meaning in Greek from the classical period
through the patristic x There is no evidence of anaideia meaning anything
other than 'shamelessness.'

I think this work.

Secondarily yours,
