Paul the Jewish theologian -- Pentecost, the nations of the world, and the Apostle Paul -- Judaism and Christianity : diverse perspectives on Torah -- The Torah : roots of grace and faith in Paul's message -- Torah : the dead letter or the living word? -- The transcendence of Torah in Paul's teachings -- Love as the foundation of Christian ministry : the model of 1 Corinthians 13 -- The essence of Paul's Jewish faith -- Seven pillars of Paul's Jewish theology.
Summary: "Paul the Jewish Theologian reveals Saul of Tarsus as a man who, though rejected in the synagogue, never truly left Judaism. Author Young disagrees with long held notions that Hellenism was the context which most influenced Paul's communication of the Gospel. This skewed notion has led to widely divergent interpretations of Paul's writings. Only in rightly aligning Paul as rooted in his Jewishness and training as a Pharisee can he be correctly interpreted. Young asserts that Paul's view of the Torah was always positive, and he separates Jesus' mission among the Jews from Paul's call to the Gentiles."
