The six essays in this volume consider the relationship between Jesus and Paul from diverse angles, bringing fresh insights into an area of study that has long been dormant. Written by established scholars, Jesus and Paul Reconnected explores historical congruity between Christ and Paul and examines connections in their thought, relationships, and practices. Topics considered include the grace of God, treatment of the poor, law and gospel, Peter’s connection between the two, the Last Supper, and the death of Christ.

Todd Still brings these superb scholars together in hopes of encouraging further conversation and contributing to this growing area of New Testament research.

Praise for the Print Edition

In this collection of fresh and insightful essays, an outstanding group of scholars offers some new and important pathways into the neglected—but historically and theologically crucial—subject of the connections between Jesus and Paul.

David G. Horrell, professor of New Testament studies, University of Exeter

I warmly welcome this collection of essays by distinguished scholars and its serious engagement with an important and often neglected theme. The essays explore persuasively some of the agreements of Jesus and Paul (e.g., Barclay on grace and Longenecker on money and possessions); they ask important questions (e.g., Markus Bockmuehl’s masterly discussion of Peter’s role in the context of recent New Testament study); and they are at times provocative (e.g., Francis Watson’s surprising contribution on the Lord’s Supper). There is much here to stimulate thought and to encourage ongoing reflection and discussion.
