Chapter Summary

This index of the book Justification by faith: the origin and development of a Central Pauline Theme presents a list of passages cited from Ancient Literature and supplements to Novum Testamentum. The book surveys a number of interpreters of Paul from William Wrede through E.P. Sanders. In an attempt to overcome the deficiencies of earlier proposals, the work then explores the soteriology of two early Jewish writings proximate to Paul, 1QS and Pss. Sol. Paul's references to his preconversion life reveal a connection between these forms of Judaism and that which Paul knew, making it likely that within a short time after his conversion Paul's soteriology underwent a radical change involving his adoption of ideas inherent to his later arguments on "justification by faith".

Keywords: Central Pauline Theme; Judaism; justification by faith; Paul's soteriology
