Product Description

A fresh, valuable, and compelling study on Paul's use of the law by a seasoned and distinguished New Testament scholar. Brian Rosner's Paul and the Law brings often neglected evidence to the discussion and asks different questions of the material-while also building on the work of others. He argues that Paul undertakes a polemical re-evaluation of the Law of Moses, which involves not only its repudiation as law-covenant and its replacement by other things, but also its whole-hearted re-appropriation as prophecy (with reference to the Gospel) and as wisdom for Christian living. Rosner's strength lies in showing how the apostle articulates an array of complimentary but quite different stances toward the law.

The Apostle Paul's relationship to the Law of Moses is notoriously complex and much studied. Difficulties begin with questions of definition (of the extent of Paul's corpus and the meanings of 'the law') and are exacerbated by numerous problems of interpretation of key texts.

Inextricably linked to Paul's view of the law is his teaching concerning salvation history, Israel, the church, anthropology, ethics, and eschatology. Understanding 'Paul and the law' is critical to the study of the New Testament, because it touches the perennial question of the relationship between God's grace in the gift of salvation and his demand in the call for holy living. Misunderstanding can lead to distortions of one or both.

Publisher's Description

  • Preaching's Preacher's Guide to the Best Bible Reference for 2014 (Pauline Studies)
"For neither circumcision counts for anything nor uncircumcision, but keeping the commandments of God" (1 Cor 7:19). The apostle Paul's relationship to the Law of Moses is notoriously complex and much studied. Difficulties begin with questions of definition (of the extent of Paul's corpus and the meanings of "the law") and are exacerbated by numerous problems of interpretation of the key texts. Major positions are entrenched, yet none of them seems to know what to do with all the pieces of the puzzle. Inextricably linked to Paul's view of the law is his teaching concerning salvation history, Israel, the church, anthropology, ethics and eschatology. Understanding "Paul and the law" is critical to the study of the New Testament, because it touches on the perennial question of the relationship between the grace of God in the gift of salvation and the demand of God in the call for holy living. Misunderstanding can lead to distortions of one or both. This New Studies in Biblical Theology volume is something of a breakthrough, bringing neglected evidence to the discussion and asking different questions of the material, while also building on the work of others. Brian Rosner argues that Paul undertakes a polemical re-evaluation of the Law of Moses, which involves not only its repudiation as law-covenant and its replacement by other things, but also its wholehearted re-appropriation as prophecy (with reference to the gospel) and as wisdom (for Christian living). Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

Editorial Reviews

"Rosner has proposed an exegetically-detailed and hermeneutically-sensitive way of addressing Paul's teaching on the law. He has done so with admirable clarity. Paul and the Law, in fact, is a model of how a book should be written. -- Guy Waters, Reformation 21, December 2013

"Rosner's volume is a valuable introduction to the issue of Paul and the law and provides a helpful entrance to the discussion." -- A. Chadwick Thornhill, Neotestamentica 49, no. 1 (2015)

"Rosner's book is insightful, and thus, recommended. Those interested in the topic of Paul's use of the Law would do well to consult Rosner's book and take D. A. Carson's instruction to read it slowly." -- Michael J. Vlach, The Master's Seminary Journal, Spring 2015
