Description
Provocatively argued and far-reaching in its implications, this is Pamela Eisenbaum's corrective to the traditional portrait of Paul as having rejected his Jewish faith to found Christianity, and the divisive legacy this inspires. Although Paul unabashedly proclaimed his faith in Jesus, such proclamations were not inherently Christian, Eisenbaum reminds us, since no such religious category existed in Paul's time. Nor does Paul understand Jesus Christ as having superseded the Torah, thereby replacing Judaism with Christianity. Jesus, rather, represented the fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham that he would be a blessing to the nations.

"According to traditional teachings, Paul rejected his Judaism for the new, improved version: Christianity. Bible scholar Pamela Eisenbaum says this interpretation of Paul is not only wrong, it's dangerous."Interfaith Voices
