As a sequel to the hugely successful Jesus and the Heritage of Israel, this book brings together 14 internationally acclaimed scholars in antiquities studies and experts on Paul and Luke. The contributors provoke new approaches to the troubled relation of the Lukan Paul by re-configuring the figure and impact of Paul upon nascent Christianity. Two leading questions serve as the basis of this volume—“Who are ‘Israel’ and the ‘church’ for Luke and Luke’s Paul?” and “Who is Jesus of Nazareth and who is Paul in relation to both?” The contributors provide challenging new perspectives on approaches to the figure of Paul in recent scholarship as well as in the scholarship of previous generations, “re-figuring” Paul by examining both how he is portrayed in Acts and how the Pauline figure of Acts may be envisioned within Paul’s own writings. Paul and the Heritage of Israel thus accomplishes what no other single volume has done: combining both the ‘Paul of Paul’ and the ‘Paul of Luke’ in one seminal volume.
