New Testament Masculinities
SemeiaSt 45
Publication Date
December 2003



This collection considers themes of Christology, patriarchy, violence, colonialism, family structures, and sexual practices as it explores the construction and performance of masculinity in the New Testament and related early Christian texts. Examining the Gospels, Romans, the Pastorals, Revelation, and the Shepherd of Hermas, it situates diverse masculinities within a Greco-Roman matrix and introduces biblical scholarship to a rich vein of classical scholarship on gender.
