Item Description...
This investigation builds upon recent developments in the study of Paul's use of Scripture that center around the concept of ""intertextuality."" Abasciano uses an exegetical method that incorporates into a thorough traditional exegesis a comprehensive analysis of Paul's use of Scripture against the background of interpretive traditions surrounding the texts alluded to, with great emphasis placed on analyzing the original contexts of Paul's citations and allusions. Such an intertextual exegesis is conducted in Romans 9:1-9 with an awareness of the broader unit of chapters 9-11 especially, and also the epistle as a whole. The study finds that many of the themes Paul deals with in Romans 9-11 are also present in ancient Jewish and Christian interpretive traditions surrounding the passages he invokes, and more importantly, that Paul's scriptural quotations and allusions function as pointers to their broad original contexts, from which he developed much of the form, content, and direction of his argument, holding significance for a number of exegetical details as well as broader themes and rhetorical movements. The final chapter seeks to draw conclusions concerning the significance of Paul's use of the Old Testament in Romans 9:1-9 for the exegesis and theology of Romans and for Pauline intertextuality. The identity of the true people of God is central to Romans 9-11 and the epistle. And Paul's use of Scripture is contextual and referential, calling for attention to Pauline intertextuality in standard exegetical procedure. JSNTS 301

Abasciano on Paul's Use of the Old Testament in Romans 9.1-9  Jan 11, 2009
This book is an invaluable resource for anyone's study of Romans 9. Abasciano's understanding of the manner in which the apostle Paul used Old Testament passages will aid the student of Scripture to rightly interpret the much-debated and weighty ninth chapter of the book to the Romans.

"Paul's Use of the Old Testament in Romans 9.1-9" is but a revision of his Ph.D. thesis, which was accepted by the University of Aberdeen, Scotland in 2003 (p. vii). His passion for this subject began while attending Dr. Greg K. Beale's class on the Old Testament in the New at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (p. vii-viii).

Romans 9 is often taken as a single unit, divorced from chapters 10 and 11. Abasciano rightly takes Romans 9-11 as a whole unit; "the purpose of Romans itself," writes Abasicano, "comes to its most urgent theological expression in these chapters" (pp. 29-30). More particularly, "On a literary level Romans 9-11 completes the exposition of the theme of the epistle (1.16-17), a summary statement of the gospel, by explaining the priority of the Jew and by defending the gospel Paul has presented at length against its most compelling objection ~ how the Christian gospel can be the fulfillment of Judaism/the Old Testament and its promises to Israel when the vast majority of Jews had rejected Christ and were therefore excluded from God's salvation and promises to them" (p. 31).

Abasciano handles the text of Romans 9.1-9 as fastidious as a surgeon with a scapel; leaving no stone unturned, he equips the student with a more competent understanding of Paul's intent in writing chapters 9-11.

Has God's word/promise to the Jewish people failed as a result of their rejection of Jesus, their Messiah? The answer is no. For as the Scripture teaches, "For not all Israelites truly belong to Israel" (Rom. 9:6b NRSV; cf. Rom. 2:28-29). Abasciano writes, "Though not often considered, I would like to suggest that while Paul is speaking of eternal destiny, he does so with respect to groups/corporate entities, not individuals directly" (p. 186). He takes issue with John Piper's insistence, in his "The Justification of God," that Paul is speaking primarily of individual election unto salvation by his unusual translation of Rom. 9:6b ("for all those from Israel, these are not Israel") ~ questioning from the Greek text whether or not "ou" modifies the clause "outoi Israel" (p. 183-184).

Abasciano demonstrates his competence not only of the Greek text but also of the purpose of Paul's writing the letter to the Jewish and Gentile believers in Rome. It is my contention that before one accepts the Calvinistic presupposition that Paul is speaking of unconditional election unto salvation in Romans 9 that he or she first ruminates "Paul's Use of the Old Testament in Romans 9.1-9" to see whether such things are so.
