Brian Rosner writes, As a Jew who became the apostle to the Gentiles, Paul stood between the Jewish and pagan worlds. Consequently New Testament scholars have long debated the question of the sources of Pauls thought. To which sphere was he more indebted? In Paul, Scripture, and Ethics, Rosner asks this question anew in regard to the source of Pauls ethical teaching.

In contrast to widely held scholarly opinion, Rosner uses Pauls teaching in 1 Corinthians 57 (where he addresses incest, exclusion, greed, sexual immorality, the government, and marriage) to demonstrate that Paul was indebted to the Old Testament for his ethics.

About the Author:

Brian S. Rosner is lecturer in New Testament at the University of Aberdeen.

Review:

Rosner has performed a valuable task in highlighting scriptural parallels and probable sources which readers of Paul often miss, for lack of exposure to the LXX. -- John Barclay, Expository Times

Rosners work is an important contribution to the field and will certainly provide much grist to the mill in the continuing debate on the origin, sources and motivations underlying Pauline ethics. -- Mark L. Strauss, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society

The exegetical yield of Rosners work is substantial. . . . Rosners study focuses attention on an important issue and rightly calls Pauline scholarship to attend more carefully to the role of Scripture in shaping Pauls thought. This work is an important corrective to much previous work on Pauline ethics, and at many points Rosner helpfully enables us to see Pauls teaching in a new light. Likewise, the effort to place Pauls ethics in the context of Judaisms moral teaching traditions is to be applauded; Rosners stimulating work sets a fine example in this regard. . . . We may look forward eagerly to his further work in this field. -- Richard B. Hays, Westminster Theological Seminary

[A] model of excellence for biblical scholarship. . . . What stands out, however, is not only the care and judicious balance of the whole argument at the level of exegesis, but also its relevance to contemporary discussions of Pauls ethics. -- Anthony Thiselton, Evangelical Quarterly
