With a new preface by the author, this book posists two pillars as the foundations of Paul's thought: (1) the interaction between coherence and contingency in Paul's interpretation of the gospel and (2) the apocalyptic character of his gospel. This theological construction is so imposing that it is likely to become the lightning rod for the next phase of scholarly storms.

New Testament scholar Darrell Bock points to three kinds of texts contained in the New Testament writings that show us what the earliest Christians believed (and helpfully provides 3 S’s). Schooling - We find doctrinal summaries Christians would memorize and read alongside Old Testament texts (. the Hebrew Scriptures) when they would gather together for worship in house churches (.
