Captivated by Scripture: A personal reflection on D. W. B. Robinson’s legacy for biblical studies

What made Donald W. B. Robinson such an inspiring and influential teacher for generations of students? His commitment to being captivated by Scripture.

This is a paper given by Lionel Windsor at the legacy day and launch of Donald Robinson Selected Works Volume 3: Biblical and Liturgical Studies & Volume 4: Historical Studies and Series Index.
Moore Theological College, Sydney, 16 March 2019.

“How beautiful are the feet of those who evangelise” – it’s about Paul’s Gentile mission after all (Romans 10:14-18)

I used to think that Romans 10:14-18 was about the (mostly failed) Christian mission to Jews. I was wrong. After closely reading this text, I now think it’s about Paul’s mission to Gentiles.

Paul’s priestly ministry in Romans 15: a fulfilment of Isaiah 60-61

In my book, I argue that Paul’s description of his “priestly” ministry in Romans 15:14-33 is drawn from Isaiah 60-61, which describes Israel’s eschatological priestly role toward the nations. This reinforces Paul’s depiction of his apostolic ministry as an eschatological Jew-Gentile dynamic.
