Uncovering the Theme of Revelation in Romans 1:16Ė3:26: Discovering a New Approach to Paulís Argument
Mininger, Marcus A.

Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 2/445

Description: Past study of Rom 1:16-3:26 focuses on individual salvation or on social relations and also produces a host of interpretative quandaries. Marcus A. Mininger develops a new approach, which includes but goes beyond these foci, by unearthing the theme of revelation that runs throughout Paul's argument largely unnoticed. Read this way, the rationale of Paul's argument becomes quite clear, including for "problem texts" like Rom 2 and 3:1-8, as Paul proves that the gospel, not the law, overcomes sin's power and that God's righteousness always exists in contrast to the human condition in this age.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Romans, Literature, Methods, Literary Approaches
