Abstract

"THE TREATISE ON THE RESURRECTION" (CG 1,3) AND DIATRIBE STYLE BY LUTHER H. MARTIN, JR. The contents of any writing must be understood as integral with the media through which these contents are manifest. Whereas attention is usually directed towards an understanding of literary form, stylistic analysis is often neglected - or assumed. However, stylistic analysis can add to our understanding of the Sitz im Leben of the writing. In one of the first interpretations of "The Treatise on the Resurrection" (CG 1,3), Professor W. C. van Unnik suggested, without further comment, that "many passages" of this discourse "remind us of the Professor Malcolm L. Peel, seemingly motivated by his understanding of the tractate as "a personal ... letter written by a teacher to one of his pupils", but without stylistic analysis, has called this conclusion into question.2 A stylistic analysis of the epistle supports the observation of van Unnik over against the conclusion of Peel. The author of the epistle, who remains anonymous, addresses himself simply to "my son Rheginos" (43.25; 46.6 absolutely; 47.3). This address is characteristic of Jewish wisdom literature, where the sage or teacher addresses his pupils as "my son".3 This same relationship is
