Gordon Fee: Jesus the Lord according to Paul the Apostle, reviewed by Craig S. Keener

This concise work will reward readers with much to consider.

His heavy emphasis on the OT background of NT images is commendable, since this was the primary theological context that Paul could assume that his audience shared. But this focus can occasionally lead to inadequate engagement with other context. If I correctly understand him, he regards as radical the early Christian address of God as Father, since Paul’s Jewish context rarely spoke God’s name aloud (105). But ancient Jewish worship frequently addressed God as Father.

Notwithstanding such reservations, I believe that this concise work will reward readers with much to consider. Certainly it has done so in my own case.
