Product Description

The idea that Paul's epistles prove he was anti-imperialistic is gaining popularity among New Testament scholars. Looking at these letters as well as Luke's account of Paul throughout Acts, Kim argues against this viewpoint, while going on to support his findings for developing a political Christology in our present-day context. 240 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

Author Bio

Seyoon Kim is professor of New Testament and associate dean for the Korean D.Min. program at Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California. Among his other books are The Origin of Paul’s Gospel, “The Son of Man” as the Son of God, and Paul and the New Perspective.

Publisher Description

The slogan “Paul and the Empire” is much in vogue in New Testament scholarship today. But did Paul truly formulate his gospel in antithesis to the Roman imperial cult and ideology and seek to subvert the Empire? In Christ and Caesar Seyoon Kim first examines five epistles of Paul exegetically and shows how the dominant anti-imperial interpretation is actually difficult to sustain.

Next he examines the Lukan writings (Luke-Acts) to see how Luke talks about the encounters of Paul and other gospel preachers with Roman imperialism. Kim explores why it is that Luke makes no effort to present Christ’s redemption as materialized in terms of political liberation. Finally, Kim compares the exaltation Christologies of Luke, Revelation, Paul, and Hebrews and inquires about the hermeneutical possibility of developing a political Christology in our present-day context.
