For many years the exegetical discussion on mission in the New Testament was dominated by a small number of monographs and essays. Among these older studies was that by F. Hahn (1965). It appeared in English as Mission in the New Testament (1965). There was also the overview in the collection edited by K. Kertelge (1982). Other studies were those of D. Senior & C. Stuhlmueller (1983), and L. Legrand (1990). In the past few years quite a few more substantial monographs on the theme have been published. I present and evaluate these in this article, while referring briefly to some other contributions.
