Abstract<b>The social-scientific critical exegesis of New Testament texts: A critical assessment of the first results </b> The article is the second of a series that aim to introduce social-scientific exegesis of New Testament texts. Social-scientific criticism represents an exegetical approach by means of which the rhetoric of texts is interpreted in light of their cultural environment and the social interaction that determines this context and semeiotic codes. The first article focuses on the initiators in the field of historical-critical exegesis who paved the way to social scientific criticism and it explains key facets of the “new” exegetical approach. This article explains some models and methods of social-scientific criticism and focuses on some advantages of social scientific criticism.
