About this Item

Neuware - Sigurd Grindheim anlyzes the relationship between Paul and contemporary Judaism by investigating Paul's understanding of Israel's election. In 2 Cor 11:16-12:10 and Phil 3:1-11 Paul rejects election-based privileges as basis for confidence before God. The author argues that, for Paul, the elect identity can only be rightly conceived of as entailing conformity to Christ and his cross. Jewish election-based confidence is critiqued because it does not conform to this pattern. Finally, the author analyzes Rom 9-11, where Paul approaches the question of Israel's election from a more positive angle. In light of the results reached, the study concludes with a critique of the new perspective on Paul. 282 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783161486906

About this title

Synopsis:

This book contributes to the discussion of the relationship between Paul and contemporary Judaism by investigating Paul's understanding of Israel's election. In two passages Paul rejects election-based privileges as basis for confidence before God: 2 Cor 11:16-12:10 and Phil 3:1-11. Sigurd Grindheim argues that, for Paul, the elect identity can only be rightly conceived of as entailing conformity to Christ and his cross. Jewish election-based confidence is critiqued because it does not conform to this pattern, and it must therefore be rejected as incompatible with the mind-set that is modeled after Christ. As a control of these results, this book also contains an exegesis of Rom 9-11, where Paul approaches the question of Israel's election from a more positive angle. In light of the results reached, the study concludes with a critique of the new perspective on Paul.
