  3. Places of Power in Paul’s Letter to the Romans.Beverly Roberts Gaventa - 2022 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 76 (4):293-302.
    When Paul writes about God’s power in Romans 1:16, he takes us to the heart of his understanding of the gospel. His understanding centers on power, the divine power that rescues humanity from captivity to Sin and Death, the power by which God pursues God’s own purposes even as it empowers the creatures it redeems.

  4. Christ Doesn’T Fit: Paul Replaces His Two Age Inheritance with Christ.L. Ann Jervis - 2022 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 76 (4):314-327.
    This essay reevaluates the widespread assumption that Paul modified a Jewish apocalyptic two-age dualism framework in light of Christ’s resurrection and offers an alternative explanation: that God’s salvific goal is not the new age, but Christ. The present age and Christ are mutually exclusive realities. Moreover, believers’ sin, suffering, and physical death are not signs of the overlap of the ages, but fit life in union with Christ.

  5. Paul and the Apocalypse of the Gospel.Meira Z. Kensky - 2022 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 76 (4):328-338.
    Apocalyptic thinking permeates Paul’s ideas about the gospel, God, the present age, and what is to come. Paul in his letters not only writes about the revelations that he himself has received, but also how the gospel reveals God’s ultimate justice. Apocalypticism as an ideology is fundamentally concerned with justice and the expectation of a future intervention that will conclusively reconcile the injustices of the world with the justice of God. Though of course Paul never sat down and wrote an (...)

  8. “The Deliverer Will Come”: Investigating Paul’s Adaptation of Divine Conflict Traditions in Romans.Scott C. Ryan - 2022 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 76 (4):303-313.
    In recent years, scholars have shown renewed interest about the ways in which Paul’s letters utilize divine conflict traditions. In Romans 5–8 and 16:20a Paul frames the human predicament in terms of cosmic conflict and adapts divine conflict traditions, but other passages also reflect the apostle’s adaptations of these motifs. This essay will first consider the broad contours of portrayals of God as warrior in Israel’s Scriptures. Discussion will then focus on vocabulary and themes in Rom 1:18–32 and 11:25–32 to (...)

    So Radically Jewish That He’s an Evangelical Christian: N.T. Wright’s Judeophobic and Privileged Paul.Stephen L. Young - 2022 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 76 (4):339-351.
    N.T. Wright remains an influential biblical interpreter among evangelical and conservative-mainline Christians. Critiques of his readings of Paul by scholars from the wider academy are not common in these spaces. This article illustrates the historical inaccuracies, Judeophobia, and erasures of exploitation that animate Wright’s discussions of Paul and philosophy, ancient Judaism, and the question of whether Paul was counter-cultural in Paul and the Faithfulness of God. Ultimately the apostle becomes a ventriloquist for the narratives, fixations, and voices that are comfortable (...)

    Dangerous Memory: An Antiracist Political Theology of the Cross.Roger J. Gench - 2022 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 76 (1):39-50.
    The dangerous memory of the crucified and risen Jesus confronts the “lie” of racism, past and present. The cross and resurrection disrupt our forgetfulness about the lie and awaken memory of our complicity in the reality of racism and its ongoing diminishment of the lives of racially-minoritized people. Indeed, the dangerous memory embodied in the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus creates tension that evokes a relational and agitational community of resistance to racist ideas and policies.

    The Cross as God’s Self-Exegesis: Some Contributions From Paul and John.Michael J. Gorman - 2022 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 76 (1):15-26.
    This essay argues that for Paul and John, the cross is an act of divine self-exegesis, or self-explanation. It reveals the divine attributes of love, humility/vulnerability, power, wisdom, and righteousness/justice. The cross is also intended to draw us into the life of God to share in these divine attributes.

    Their Cross Problem and Ours: Thoughts on the Aesthetic of Crucifixion.S. Mark Heim - 2022 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 76 (1):27-38.
    Contemporary Christian witness about the death of Jesus moves in a culture already saturated with an aesthetic or intuitive ethic of the crucifixion. That aesthetic has many features acquired though Christianity’s long social dominance. This essay focuses on one aspect, authentically derived from the distinctive understanding Christian faith attributed to the crucifixion. First, I describe the Roman context, and the natural “reading” of the image of a crucified person there, as the background to considering the absence of that image in (...)

    Mending What Is Broken: The Logic of the Cross in 1 Corinthians.Suzanne Watts Henderson - 2022 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 76 (1):5-14.
    In recent decades, scholars have come to see 1 Corinthians as a rhetorically unified response to the problem of divisions among Corinthian believers. This essay explores the ways in which Paul presents the cross as the organizing principle that can bind together three different forms of community division: the cult of the personality ; the freedom to eat idol meat ; and economic disparities when gathered for a meal. In each case, Paul appeals implicitly or explicitly to the cross as (...)
