How did Paul view the relationship between Jews and Christ believing gentiles? Or rather, how do we today, as scholars and religious leaders, interpret Paul’s writing about this highly relevant and discussed topic? How do we handle these texts today, in building our own identity and “the Other’s” identity, and in Jewish-Christian relations?
These are questions I deal with in my research.
Unusual for a Biblical scholar, I will be doing fieldwork in Israel investigating how three groups of religious leaders interpret Pauline texts. The empirical results are compared and discussed with scholarly interpretations through modern history of the same texts.
