Chapter Summary

In Paul' s view the turn of the ages has started with Jesus' mission on earth. According to Paul, the end of time has started with Jesus' mission, which consisted of more than his death and resurrection. The view that Paul believed that the end of time has started with Jesus' death and resurrection is the result of two misunderstandings. However, the idea that Jesus has become the eschatological Lord and Christ can only have arisen if Jesus was already viewed as an eschatological figure before his death. The differences between Paul's opinion that Jesus' martyrological resurrection is the beginning of the eschatological resurrection and the idea that Taxo's martyrdom is the beginning of the eschaton are considerable. Paul's idea that Jesus' resurrection is the beginning of the eschatological resurrection has no real parallel in Jewish thought of Paul's time. Yet, the idea is not completely without analogy.

Keywords: eschatological resurrection; Jesus' martyrological resurrection; Jesus' resurrection; Paul's opinion
