The Three Paths to Salvation of Paul the Jew

A Virtual Book Review of Gabriele Boccaccini's Paul’s Three Path’s to Salvation
Thursday, September 30, 2021
3:00-5:00 PM
Off Campus Location
What did Paul, as an apocalyptic Jew and follower of Jesus, think about the concept of Salvation? Paul did not convert nor break with his inherited traditions but was part of the lively diversity of Second Temple Judaism. Boccaccini’s ‘Paul’s Three Paths to Salvation’ is an attempt to reconcile the many facets of Paul’s complex Jewish identity while reclaiming him from accusations of intolerance. Boccaccini’s work in reestablishing Paul as a messenger of God’s mercy to sinners is an important contribution to the ongoing conversation about Paul’s place in the contemporary pluralistic world.

This review panel includes an introduction by the author (Gabriele Boccaccini), review presentations by Lisa Bowens (Princeton Theological Seminary), Isaac Oliver (Bradley University), Matthew Novenson (University of Edinburgh), Cecilia Wassen (Uppsala University), and Emma Wasserman (Rutgers University), followed by an open dialogue among participants.
