Chapter Summary

The main conflict which Paul experienced at the time of writing was between himself and his "integrated" congregations of Jews and Greeks on the one hand, and his opponents among Jews (Christian and non-Christian) on the other. Paul's mission to the non-Jewish world and the understanding of God which legitimized his praxis belong inseparably together. His frequent use of God-language in Romans which centred on this question shows his continuing theological reflection on issues which arose from his missionary activity. Paul's way of speaking antithetically about God is part of his interpretation of scripture, when he brings it to bear on the contemporary situation. The situation reflected in the New Testament seems to be totally different, since the existence of God is taken for granted and never brought into question.
