Rate this:
Does Paul offer a new understanding of God? Or was his Christology simply added to his inherited jewish beliefs about God? Scholars have tended to ignor questions such as these, or to take for granted the possible answers to them. This new study, based on recent research, examines in detail Paul's language about God. Four chapters are devoted to Romans 9-11, Corinthians 1.18-3.23, 2 Corinthians 12.14-4.6 and Romans 12.1-15.13, exploring their God-language, and drawing out its signigicance against the wider Jewish and Graeco-Roman backgrounds. A fifth chapter explores the interplay of Paul's language about God and his language about Christ, including his use of the title Kyrios. Flyer blurb: This is a book which breaks new ground in offering new perspectives on some of Paul's familiar theological language.
