The Fall 2013 (3.2) Issue of JSPL on Paul and the Law

Due the hustle and bustle of the holidays and SBL chaos, I did not have a chance to mention the excellent fall 2013 issue of Journal for the Study of Paul and His Letters (edited by Mike Bird and myself). This is truly a “must-have” issue (and please let me remind you that a yearly subscription is merely $30 for US individual, $35 otherwise; $40-45 for institution):

Brian Rosner, “Written for Our Instruction: The Law as Wisdom in Paul’s Ethics” – Brian is one of my favorite Pauline interpreters, even since my early days of seminary when I read his Paul, Scripture, and Ethics as well as Understanding Paul’s Ethics. And I knew his work as editor and contributor to the New Dictionary of Biblical Theology. I have his new book Paul and the Law, and this essay is an articulation of part of his argument.

Justin Hardin, ” ‘If I Still Proclaim Circumcision’ (Gal 5:11a)” – Justin is an up-and-coming Paulinist and challenges none other than Doug Campbell on his reading of this text in its context. You decide who’s right!

Peter-Ben Smit, “Ritual Failure, Ritual Negotiation, and Paul’s Argument in 1 Cor 11:17-34” – Smit looks at this text from the perspective of ritual studies.

William Walker, Jr. “2 Cor 3:7-18 as a Non-Pauline Interpolation”  – If anyone can convince you a text is an interpolation, it would be Walker.

Michael J. Gorman, “The Lord of Peace: Christ Our Peace in Pauline Theology” – Is the concept of peace important to Pauline theology? This is a great study of this subject.

Timothy G. Gombis, Review of Colin Kruse, Paul’s Letter to the Romans

Myriam Klinker-de Klerck, Dissertation/Monograph summary of Pastoral Rule or Lesson on Assimilation? A Contribution to the Research on the Ethical Instructions in 1 Timothy and Titus.

  1. My library does not carry this journal, even though it is said to be the second most used theological library in north america. Could individual papers be made available online, for a fee (or preferably for free)?
