Description

This study examines Paul's faithfulness to his biblical heritage while at the same time identifying the Apostle as a maverick who used contemporaneous Jewish methods only to fracture the commonly accepted interpretations about Abraham. After studying all relevant Jewish and Christian literature from Genesis to the Rabbis, it is only in both Paul's epistles and Genesis that we discover similar themes concerning Abraham such as justification by faith, righteousness apart from law, and blessing to the nations. Paul marched to a different drummer, but he followed in the footsteps of Abraham. This study yields new insights into the issue of Paul's continuity/discontinuity with the Old Testament and his Jewish heritage.
