Paul Roundup

Paul Roundup January 25, 2021

So what has been happening lately in the study of Paul? Biblical studies blogs, as usual, are a good place to get a sense of things, and that is an important service both to scholars and to the general public. The latter should be asking primarily about the consensus when there is one. The former will know when there is a consensus and if so what it is, and will want to see what is new, not with a view to uncritically embracing it, but to have a sense of what they should be thinking about and perhaps interacting with.

Let me start with this blog post on the Cambridge University Press blog which includes some free articles:
