Synopsis

This title shows how God communicates with humans and how this is then reinterpreted when humans communicate with each other about what God has said. This communication is often used to juxtapose the Greco-Roman world's inability to assuage human despair, which lead to a turn towards God. "Chirst in Paul's Thought" is concerned with religious ideas of the nature of communication between God and humans, and between humans and humans as presented in the undisputed correspondence of the Apostle Paul. This communication scheme is compared and contrasted with texts understood as post-Pauline glosses, pseudo-Pauline, and deuteron-Pauline literature, as well as apocryphal texts pertaining to the Apostle to determine whether the communication scheme demonstrated in the communications agent, Paul, operate in unison to bring to dejected humankind a communication scheme of God's - through Christ - salvific activity and telos. Paul's concept of Chirst's function in this scheme is tied to both ancient Israel's understanding of the covenant, and the Greco-Roman world's failure through its philosophical and religious teachings to assuage and/or resolve human despair.

By his understanding of Chirst, Paul represents him as both the specific savior agent for traditional Israel, as well as for universal "Israel,": the Church. Membership in this Church/" Israel" has the power to resolve the despair.
