9780310517955: Reading Romans in Context: Paul and Second Temple Judaism

Readers of Paul today are more than ever aware of the importance of interpreting Paul’s letters in their Jewish context. In Reading Romans in Context a team of Pauline scholars go beyond a general introduction that surveys historical events and theological themes and explore Paul’s letter to the Romans in light of Second Temple Jewish literature.

In this non-technical collection of short essays, beginning and intermediate students are given a chance to see firsthand what makes Paul a distinctive thinker in relation to his Jewish contemporaries. Following the narrative progression of Romans, each chapter pairs a major unit of the letter with one or more thematically related Jewish text, introduces and explores the theological nuances of the comparative text, and shows how these ideas illuminate our understanding of the book of Romans.

Review:

"Reading Romans in Context is of great value to the reader who is coming to the world of Second Temple Judaism for the first time. Light is shone on various possible interrelationships between Paul and his world, such that the reader will find much that is of use heuristically when reading Romans in context." Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society "The concept and approach of the volume are to be commended, as the book provides an accessible introduction to important texts that many may otherwise find intimidating or dismiss as irrelevant, and the brevity of the volume facilitates its inclusion as a supplement in a variety of introductory or intermediate-level courses." Journal of Theological Studies
