Chapter Summary

For the most part, biblical scholarship has treated Paul as a distant creature of the past. With his legendary death in Rome, Paul's hope for the future suffered a more inglorious fate. Ever since F. C. Baur broke up the dogmatic glacier over Romans, there has been constant debate about the historical situation and purpose of the last extant letter of Paul. This chapter discusses the third leg on Paul's journey: Spain. The question of why Paul would go to Spain is linked to the usual assumption that there were Jewish communities in Spain which Paul customarily would use for his initial base of operations. In 24 BCE Augustus returned to Rome to celebrate a triumphal campaign of northwestern Spain. The pacification of Spain was brought about not simply by Roman military success.
