The documentary papyri are among the most interesting products of antiquity because it fascinating insights into people's everyday lives. You are responsible for the interpretation of the New Testament is of particular value in that they help to open up the living world of New Testament authors and their addressees clearly. The papyri promote the reconstruction of concrete living conditions, social situations, legal, economic and medical issues to dealing with personal problems and the more mundane things of everyday life. Your reading also allows to understand the reception theory of metaphorical language aspects that are essential for the development of theological contexts. The contributions to this volume examine these dimensions from the viewpoint of Papyrology and the exegesis of the New Testament. The fact that the New Testament writings were created on the medium of papyrus and narrated highlights the often neglected affinity of the two disciplines. The band sees itself as a contribution to the now again renewed interdisciplinary collaboration between exegesis and Papyrology.
