I am doing a lecture next week on Romans 9-11. Does anyone have recommendations regarding short and succinct entry-points into the controversies of this section and how various scholars have read these chapters?
So far, I am working with Mark Reasoner’s Romans in Full Circle as well as a variety of introductions to Paul and the NT.
The Dec 2012 issue of JSNT is online and has some very interesting articles including one by Paul Foster where he calls for a re-evaluation of the scholarly tendency to treat 2 Thessalonians as pseudonymous. Essentially, Foster says, due to developments in research, the very outdated arguments for why 2 Thess was not written by Paul are no longer convincing. I think Foster is right about this, and this also applies (I would argue) to Colossians.
