Reinventing Paul

John G. Gager

Oxford University Press

There is no absolute unanimity among defenders of the new St. Paul on every detail. On the issue of whether Paul repudiates the Law of Moses and rejects Israel as the people of God, however, there is something close to general agreement. It might be argued that Paul identified Israel's path to salvation with his own life history or with the pattern of other Jews like Peter and James. The existence of Peter and others like him who accepted Jesus as the Messiah of Israel, has caused some to doubt the plausibility of the new Paul. The chapter also discusses the charges of inconsistency and self-contradiction that have come to be associated with St. Paul from antiquity to the present.

Keywords:   St. Paul, Law of Moses, Israel, Peter, James
