NO OF PAGES: 277 SUB CAT I: Paul SUB CAT II: Covenants SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: Most interpreters of Paul emphasize that for Paul, God as universal lawgiver and judge effects righteousness through Christ's saving death, that is, along lines entirely compatible with Paul's previously Pharisaic understanding of God. But since for Paul the power of Torah and tradition to save had in essence its legs kicked out from under it, the question needs to be asked, What made it possible for Gentiles to be saved? Loyola University Professor John L. White contends that to understand the Christ-event in accordance with Torah and Jewish tradition, Paul--the Apostle to the Gentiles--recognized in Abraham and Sarah (as neither ethnically Jewish nor Torah-bound) the explanation for the new status of Gentiles. Because of Christ, the promised seed of Abraham, the Gentiles receive the blessing of Abraham. For the apostle of God, this revelation came not from others or from human teaching, but from his encounter with the God of Abraham and Sarah.NOTES: Purchased from CBD.
