Paul and Palestinian Judaism compares Judaism, understood on its own terms, with Paul, understood on his own terms. Sanders aims to:
  • Consider methodologically how to compare two (or more) related but different religions
  • destroy the view of Rabinic Judaism which is still prevalent in much, perhaps most, New Testament scholarship
  • establish a different view of Rabbinic Judaism
  • argue a case concerning Palestinian Judaism as a whole
  • argue for a certain understanding of Paul
  • carry out a comparison of Paul and Palestinian Judaism

This volume makes a contribution not only to the understanding of Paul and his relationship to Judaism, but also to the study of Judaism itself.
