Paul, the Law and the Jewish People
E. P. Sanders
From The Publisher:
This book is devoted both to the problem of Paul's view of the law as a whole, and to his thought about and relation to his fellow Jews. Building upon his previous study, the critically acclaimed Paul and Palestinian Judaism, E. P. Sanders explores Paul's Jewishnesss by concentrating on his overall relationship to Jewish tradition and thought. Sanders addresses such topics as Paul's use of scripture, the degree to which he was a practicing Jew during his career as apostle to the Gentiles, and his thoughts about his "kin by race" who did not accept Jesus as the Messiah. In short, Paul's thoughts aobut the law and his own people are re-examined with new awareness and great care.
Sanders addresses an important chapter in the history of the emergence of Chrstianity. Paul's role in that development — especially in light of Galatians and Romans — is now re-evaluated in a major way. This book is in fact a significant contribution to the study.
