Chapter Summary

Paul is in his theology busy to legitimize new experience with ancient traditions. The image of Israel is marked in the introduction of deep ambivalence: Israel is a hand under a curse, on the other hand, under the blessing of his prerogatives. The corresponding self-image of Paul, which is marked by deep inner conflict: On the one hand "great sorrow and pain without ceasing" fills his heart, on the other he praises because of Israel's privileges to, "who is God above all, he was blessed for ever. The statements about Israel are determined by the ambivalence of Paul toward Israel: In Rome it represents the division of Israel, before the non-chosen part he has fear, he is therefore shown as the enemies of Israel. In the introduction of Rome 9 Paul manifests the unreal desire to take the place of the unredeemed Israel.
