Is Romans the New Deuteronomy?

Marvin Pate Apostle of the Last DaysThere is no doubt that Deuteronomy profoundly shaped the theology of the apostle Paul. However, what if his most famous letter – Romans – is completely structured around Deuteronomy? This is exactly what C. Marvin Pate argues in his book Apostle of the Last Days (and his Romans commentary in Teach the Text Series). In his words, “the outline of Romans matches the covenant components of Deuteronomy” (p162). It’s as if Romans is the new Deuteronomy; as Deuteronomy was the document for the Israelite (Old) covenant, Romans would be the formal document for the New Covenant.

Review: C. Marvin Pate, Romans (Teach The Text)

Marvin Pate RomansC.

To reach this end it “utilizes the best of biblical scholarship but also presents the material in a clear, concise, attractive, and user-friendly format” (p vii). The goal for this series is clearly to assist one inĀ teaching the biblical text.

Review: Craig Keener, Romans (New Covenant Commentary)

Keener Romans NCCCraig Keener is professor of New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary, a human encyclopedia of ancient literature and an all-around fascinating guy. He also writes epic commentaries, such as his 1,636 page commentary on John and his multi-volume work on Acts (vol 1. of the intro through Acts 2:47 is 1,104 pages!). This makes his 300 page commentary on Romans in the New Covenant Commentary series (NCCS) a bit of a surprise to say the least.

Review: Thomas Schreiner, Romans (BECNT)

Schreiner Romans BECNTThomas Schreiner is professor of New Testament Interpretation at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, pastor of Clifton Baptist church in Louisville, Kentucky, and author of many well-received books.

For others, it is my joy to introduce and recommend this work to you.
