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.

Publisher's 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.

Editorial Reviews

Christopher Bryan author of Render to Caesar
"Seyoon Kim provides us with a thoughtful and well-informed examination of Paul's and Luke's attitudes toward Roman rule, touching on a number of issues not previously so well or fully discussed. At the same time, Kim provides a useful corrective to the latest fad in New Testament criticism, namely, the hypothesis of 'Jesus the freedom fighter,' showing it to be generally based upon faulty use of the data."
 
Interpretation
"A steady stream of publications over recent years has argued that NT texts contain anti-imperial agendas. Seyoon Kim's new volume dares to swim against the popular current. He argues that Paul's letters, the Gospel of Luke, and the Acts of the Apostles do not, in fact, attempt to subvert the Roman imperial order. . . This book is highly recommended for all scholars and pastors with special interest in the NT's relationship to the Roman Empire. It is concise and clear, making it accessible to a wide readership."
