Paul and the Vocation of Israel

ThLZ review: Paul and the Vocation of Israel

A review of my book Paul and the Vocation of Israel has appeared in the German journal Theologische Literaturzeitung. Extract [my translation]: “Windsor’s work deserves credit as it will certainly stimulate further exegetical reflection. He has taken Paul’s efforts in self-assurance, by means of his appropriation of Isaiah, and placed them in reference to Paul’s statements about Judaism.”

Did Paul reject “Judaism?”

Galatians 1:13-14 is not making a direct statement about Paul’s rejection of “Second Temple Judaism”. Rather, Galatians 1:13-14 is simply saying that Paul had rejected one particular Jewish idea – Ἰουδαϊσμός.
