Description: This study offers a fresh, thorough engagement with Paul's use of Deuteronomy, paying full attention to the concrete realities of Paul's exposure, in life and literature, to Torah. David Lincicum compares Paul's handling of Deuteronomy to the treatment of Deuteronomy in other contemporary Jewish sources. He shows how this key book of Jewish Scripture was influential in Jewish life and liturgy and how it bears on Paul's relationship to the Law.
