Paul and His Theology
A question that has long occupied students of Paul is whether there is a definable center to his thought. A previous generation of interpreters did not find it insuperably difficult to posit that there was a central notion or even complex set of notions that motivated and centered his thinking—even though discussion of the issues surrounding “doing” New Testament theology has been with us for centuries. For many this central Pauline notion was the concept of justification by faith, but others have suggested a variety of other ideas. Finding a center for Paul’s theology has passed out of fashion in recent theological discussion, however, so that the result is often a more apparently fragmented picture of Paul’s thought. More to the point, one of the major preoccupations of much recent theologizing is the issue of whether and how biblical theology, and in particular in this case New Testament theology, and even more particularly the theology of a particular author (here, Paul), should be done.2 In this introductory essay, I wish to introduce some of the issues that surround discussion of the notion of defining Paul’s theology, always keeping an eye on the question of whether it is possible to find a center to his thought, and what that center might look like.
One of the first issues regarding coming to terms with study of Paul’s theology is that his theology is treated in a variety of different contexts. I will select six for brief mention here.
There are first, for example, individual essays on particular dimensions of Paul’s thought. The Pauline Theology Consultation/Group at the Society of Biblical Literature from 1986 to 1995 culminated in four volumes on Paul’s theology. These volumes began with the smaller letters and then proceeded to the larger ones of the seven generally considered authentic, providing for the most part treatments of individual books.5 Other volumes, including journals, might also have essays on particular topics in Paul’s thought.6 This particular volume is to a large extent an exercise in this type of Pauline research. There are fourteen different authors who are addressing various issues in Paul’s thought. Some of these essays are concerned with a number of Paul’s letters, while others with just one. Some of them are concerned with a broad topic, while others are more narrowly focused.
