Chapter Summary

Close to the end of his theological exposition about Israel (Rom 9-11), Paul envisages the ultimate salvation of all Israel in Rom 11:25-32 as a "mystery". Scholarly discussion about Qumran apocalypticism and the relation between wisdom and apocalypticism owes much to Florentino García Martínez, and it is in honour to him that the author writes this chapter. A re-reading of Rom 11:25-32 in light of the Dead Sea Scrolls makes it clear that Paul's revelation of mystery stands close to a Palestinian Jewish stream of tradition in which sapiential and apocalyptic dimensions are interrelated. The author's discussion of Qumran texts provides further evidence that there are more intra-Jewish aspects of Pauline thought in Rom 11:25-32 than have hitherto been assumed. In this respect, Paul's mystery of Israel's ultimate salvation may be understood as a dialogue with contemporary Jewish discourse.
