Understanding the Lord's Prayer from a Discourse Perspective

Nylund, Jan LU (2014) Society of Biblical Literature International Meeting 2014
Abstract
At the centre of the Sermon on the Mount we find the most famous prayer of the New Testament, the Lord’s Prayer. This paper argues that the Lord’s Prayer is best understood from a discourse perspective. Rather than approaching the Sermon on the Mount from the traditional atomistic perspective of Form Criticism, where each text unit is thought to have had a separate existence and then been brought together to reflect the perspective of a “Matthean community,” this paper argues that the Lord’s Prayer is best understood when the Sermon on the Mount is perceived of as a coherent and structured unit whose totality interrelates with the each part of the Prayer.
