Top Highlights

“The main section of the sermon, from 5:21 through 7:12, is composed of fourteen triads. The first member of each triad is traditional righteousness. The second member is the diagnosis of a vicious cycle and its consequence. The third member is a transforming initiative that points the way to deliverance from the vicious cycle.” (Page 268)

“This unity, however, is not uniformity.37 In Christian baptism, Jews are baptized as Jews, Greeks as Greeks, slaves as slaves, free persons as free persons, males as males, and females as females. Baptism does not abolish such distinctions but treats them as irrelevant for entrance into the community of faith.38 Once in this community, of course, the baptized person must still contend with her or his cultural, economic, and gendered status as well as with the differing status of others.39 Nevertheless, all have full standing in the community in that all are baptized.” (Pages 121–122)

“In fact, it is no illustration at all, but a climax, a command, with an imperative, spelling out the normative practice of peacemaking, instead of anger or murder.” (Page 271)

“Paul’s words in Phil 1:19–26 should be understood as an instance of the rhetorical technique of feigned perplexity” (Page 529)

“the most puzzling, mysterious, and indeed baffling of all in the sermon: 7:6.” (Page 289)
