Item Description...
Paul the Jewish Theologian reveals Saul of Tarsus as a man who, though rejected in the synagogue, never truly left Judaism. Author Young disagrees with long held notions that Hellenism was the context which most influenced Paul's communication of the Gospel. This skewed notion has led to widely divergent interpretations of Paul's writings. Only in rightly aligning Paul as rooted in his Jewishness and training as a Pharisee can he be correctly interpreted. Young asserts that Paul's view of the Torah was always positive, and he separates Jesus' mission among the Jews from Paul's call to the Gentiles.

Paul the Jewish Theologian: A Pharisee among Christians, Jews, and Gentiles  Jan 20, 2008
Paul the Jewish Theologian: A Pharisee among Christians, Jews, and Gentiles

An excellent book! The sections demonstrating The Grace of God in the Law (Torah) and The Grace of God in Judaism are vital information for the Church. Truly the effects of Marcion still beat in the Church today.
Excellent book...It shares a different world view for the typical Christian  Dec 7, 2007
For believers who like to be challenged, this is a wonderful read! It definitely presents a different world view. One where Paul is viewed from a Jewish perspective and the Jews are a part of the church today. I would highly recommend this book!
Excellent Read for the non-expert  May 13, 2007
Dr. Brad Young is an expert on the dynamics of second temple Judaism and the first century Christianity. But as one of his mentors, Robert Lindsey, once said, "An expert is a person who can dive down the deepest and come up the driest on a subject." Brad has avoided that pitfall in this work. "Paul, the Jewish Theologian" is an excellent read for the interested reader who has not become an expert.

The idea that Paul is a first century Pharisee not post reformation theologian is still quite new to Christians as whole. More importantly, as a group we are absolutely unfamiliar with the thought and idiom commonly used in the first century of the Christian era. Brad Young is exactly that. He is an expert in the Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic of that day. He can not only read and write in these languages, but he can also think in them.

In this book Brad shares the results of years of study in Jerusalem at the side of men who have followed in the footsteps of W. D. Davies, David Daube and others. His chief mentor, David Flusser, was one of one greatest experts on both Judaism and First Century Christianity. He does this without requiring the reader to have that expertise.

For those who want to go deeper, he has footnotes and a an excellent bibliography.

For those wanting more, get David Flusser's "Judaism and the Origins of Christianity." It is not an easy read. It is a compendium of the most relevant writings of Dr. Flusser and other scholars, including Brad Young.

I recommend this book and Brad's other books as well.
A good work  Jan 5, 2007
I enjoyed this book by Mr. Young more than the others (The Parables & Jesus the Jewish Theologian). I feel Mr. Young succeeds in presenting the Apostle Paul in his proper context and I recommend this book wholeheartedly.
Good Book for Those New to the Jewish Roots of Christianity  Dec 31, 2005
This book provides a good introduction to the apostle Paul's Jewish theological roots and his place as a Jewish apostle to the gentiles. Young argues against the Hellenistic interpretation of Paul's writings that has become commonplace, placing Paul as a man who never left Judaism and thus never left first century Pharisaic Jewish thought. Paul's Pharisaic Jewish roots are underneath his whole thought process and reasoning in his mission to bring the gentiles to faith in Jesus Christ..

In spite of it being a good introduction, I thought there was not enough "meat" in the book. I think it is because I have already encountered a lot of the points he makes in the book elsewhere. If I was new to studying the Hebraic roots of Christianity, I would probably have a different opinion.

If you already :

- know that "replacement theology" is wrong
- are familiar with evidence that Israel is not permanently cast off from God and that she is the root that supports those who believe in Jesus Christ (i.e. Romans 9-11)
- have already concluded that Jesus and Paul are both faithful Jews and their sayings should be interpreted in the light of first century Jewish thought and culture

I would guess that you have probably read material similar to what is in Young's book. So you might not gain a whole lot of new knowledge from this book.

I have read Young's excellent book, "The Parables: Jewish Tradition and Christian Interpretation" and was really hoping for something like that. Maybe in the future Young will do an expanded version of "Paul the Jewish Theologian" with some more details. So I rate "Paul the Jewish Theologian" on its usefulness from the point of view of those who are new to the Jewish roots of Christianity.
