Abstract

THE TRADITIONSGESCHICHTE OF MATT. 11:12-13, PAR. LUKE 16:16 by STEPHEN LLEWELYN Sydney Introduction The interpretation of Matt. 11:12 is problematic. Bultmann' observes that it is 'no longer patent of confident interpretation'. Kiisemann states: 'The history of the saying shows that we are dealing with very primitive tradition, already unintelligible by the time of the Evangelists.' For a history of the discussion of this prob- lematic verse see P.S. Cameron, Violence and the Kingdom: The Inter- pretation of Matthew 11:12 (Frankfurt 1988). The interpretation of Luke 16:16 would be easier if it were not for its difficult parallel in Matthew. Even so, in a recent study Cort6s and Gatti3 describe Luke 16:16 as one of the cruces interpretum of the New Testament. They identify three principal points of con- troversy over the verse: PISTOL : Is the verb's sense positive or negative?4 Is its voice middle or passive? 1 R.
