Justification and New Perspective 15

Justification and New Perspective 13

posted by Scot McKnight

In a remarkable piece of insight, Tom Wright once asked what Pauline theology would look like if we began with Ephesians and Colossians instead of Romans, and in just a few pages (168-175) in Justification: God’s Plan & Paul’s Vision, […]

Justification and New Perspective 7

We are working our way through Tom Wright’s new book, Justification: God’s Plan & Paul’s Vision, and how the new perspective (Tom Wright’s version of it anyway) is playing out today. What about the Law then? How does Wright understand […]

Justification and New Perspective 6

Justification and New Perspective 5
