Chapter Summary

In recent years, Paul's view of the Jewish law has become a central concern to those interested in the roots of "Christian anti-Semitism". Although this chapter by-passes discussion of Paul's supposed anti-Semitism, the author's conclusions have certainly been incompatible with the view that Paul repudiated Judaism and therefore with the view that Paul was anti-Semitic. The chapter talks about the work of Lloyd Gaston and John G. Gager, which represents a serious attempt to understand Paul and deserves a response, especially from those who write on Paul and the law. Romans and Galatians are the two letters which Gager and Gaston discuss most extensively; but they also comment on Phil. 3:7-11 and 2 Cor. 3. They believe that in Phil. 3:7-11 Paul's intention was not to commend his own experience to others; it was instead to describe his own unique call to be apostle to the Gentiles.
