Chapter Summary

This conclusion presents some closing thoughts of the concepts discussed in the book Grace and Agency in Paul and Second Temple Judaism. This book has sought to show how Paul's reading of Scripture informed his conceptions about divine grace and human agency. At the same time, it has endeavoured to set those conceptions into Paul's ancient context and ask how they have been reshaped according to his particular experience of God's grace in Christ. The book summarises Paul's interpretation by answering the following questions: What agent performs the transformative act? When do these things take place? What does Paul understand the scriptural metaphors to signify? Whose agency and initiative is being prioritised? The investigation into Paul's reading of Scripture has brought issues regarding the relationship between grace and obedience into clearer focus.

Keywords: grace; Jewish contemporaries; obedience; Pauline theology; Scripture; Second Temple Judaism
