Enlightenment Read Sep 29, 2007
Dr Douglas Moo avers:
'And (Tom) Wright may put too much of his own "spin" on Israel's story and FAIL to do justice to the degree to which Paul moves beyond the story of Israel - to the story of humankind.' pg 171
I detect a bias against the New Perspective on Paul gathering.
'As a product of the CONTEMPORARY narrative turn in theology, Pauline scholars (sic) have suggested that the apostle's theology may owe more to an underlying "story" of Jesus' life than had previously been recognized. While some of the specific conclusions drawn from this NEW approach have been unconvincing...' pg 177
'One is the CLAIM of James Dunn that Paul does not teach the personal pre-existence of Jesus. ...as Dunn does, to DENY the personal pre-existence of Christ in those texts.' pg 178
'Dunn argues that Paul is simply APPLYING wisdom language to Christ to affirm of Him what Jews believed about Wisdom: that it embodied the power of God. (Christology in the Making, pg 182)' pg 178
Is Dunn denying the Incarnation?
Thank you, Dr Moo, for your insightful critique.
'The human spirit slants its perspectives in a manner that does violence to the truth of revelation, while its very formulations are at the same time made possible because reason is a divine gift whose legitimate and proper use man has compromised.' Carl F H Henry, God, Revelation & Authority, Book 1 pg 91
