Beverly Gaventa and John Barclay on Paul and the Gift

Beverly Gaventa and John Barclay on Paul and the Gift September 8, 2017

In ExpTim 128.11 (2018) is a good exchange between Beverly Gaventa and John Barclay about Barclay’s book Paul and the Gift.

Gaventa’s critique includes:

– God’s gift includes the continuing beneficence of the giver to cause believers to endure.
– Paul is not concerned to fulfill some sort of ancient sense of moral order.
– Paul can talk about Jesus’ death in terms other than a gift.
– A neglect of the back end of Romans 8 concerning God’s triumph over the powers.

Barclay responds in his essay.

"This quote's a keeper in the relationship between the kingdom and the church. Thanks."
