Professor Gundry answers questions about what "soma" means and how its definition affects other theological questions.
The Apostle Paul uses this Greek word often -- in theologically important ways. - Does it mean 'body' or 'person'? - Does it stress function or substance? - Does it connote solidarity with others or individuality? What bearing do the answers to these questions have on: - Death of the whole person versus disembodied existence? - Resurrection of a spiritual body versus resurrection of a physical body? - Existential anthropology versus historical anthropology? - Sin as enslavement versus sin as guilt? - Salvation by liberation versus salvation atonement? - The body of Christ as a sacrament versus the body of Christ as a metaphor? - Christian mysticism versus Christian activism?
Gundry is Professor of New Testament and Greek at Westmont College, Santa Barbara, California.
