3 comments on “Paul’s Arrival in Jerusalem

  1. You’re covering a very interesting time in church history. What to do with the Gentiles in the light of Jesus Christ. You’ve probably read, or even taught on, what’s been dubbed the “New Perspective on Paul” from modern Pauline scholars (Sanders, Dunn, N.T. Wright). Basically, that works-righteousness (as Luther supposed) was never the issue. Paul was coming against the Judaizers basing salvation on the observances that separated the Jews from Gentiles (circumcision, dietary laws, etc.) that had no bearing on our relationship with Christ. Anyway, fascinating stuff being debated about this today.
