I wish I had more time to blog some gems but I'm frantically busy at the moment. Here are just a very few of the hundreds of gems I've highlighted:
- Paul remained a deeply Jewish thologian who had rethought and reworked every element of hisnative Jewish theology in the light of the Messiah and the spirit, resulting in his own vocational self-understanding as apostle to the pagans.
- The second century Jews gave up their narrative because they had been defeated by Rome. The sixteenth-century protestants gave up their narrative because they believed they had escaped from Rome.
- This is the time of the new creation; the time of the new Temple, which, I would suggest, constitutes the new Sabbath
- It is almost as though the entire system is designed to challenge human beings to grow up in their understanding.
- Just as the Christian worldview compels people to think in a new way... so Christian theology remains a corporate task, one in which the church as a whole has to engage.
- Give someone a thought and you help them for a day; teach someone to think and you transform them for life.
