(한글 자막) The secret of ‘truth, ultimate’ in Paul and palestinian Judaism / 바파유의 ‘궁극적 진리’에 담긴 비밀


There has been much controversy over Professor
Ed Parish Sanders’s or E. P. Sanders’s index on ‘Truth, ultimate’ in his book titled . Professor Sanders opened his mouth for the first time
in over 41 years, after the book was published. He presented an entirely different perspective
from our traditional understanding of Paul’s interpretation of Judaism. That`s why professor Sanders has been known for
‘the father of the New Perspective on Paul’, though he denied himself that
he was a part of the New Perspective on Paul group. He situates Paul in the context of the 1st century of Palestine, especially in the 1st century of Judaism. According to the traditional interpretation, Judaism regarded that
we could be saved by observing the Law. However, Sanders insisted the interpretation of traditional Christianity that Paul accused of Rabbinic legalism was a misunderstanding about Judaism and Paul. Instead, he insisted on the critical distinction of pre-Christianity Judaism, and Pauline teaching
was to be found in ideas of how one becomes the People of God. He termed the Jewish belief
as the ‘covenantal nomism’. The following two theses are the key points. One is that a person turns into God’s people by his covenant that he had with Abraham. Also, the other is the person stays in the covenant by observing the Law. Then, what on earth is Sanders’s ultimate Truth? Let’s open the book, ‘Paul and Palestinian Judaism’. It is clearly indexed as “Truth, ultimate”
for the pages of 30, 32, and 430. However, if you follow the index, oddly enough,
you will find blank pages. On that matters, many theologians have judged Sanders’ attitude to the truth and interpreted his theological intention. For example, Nicholas Thomas Wright said: What is the real intention of Sanders
in this index? Sanders opened his mouth for the first time
in 41 years after the book was published. Last November, one of the Korean publishing
companies met and interviewed Sanders. Now, let’s see Sanders’ interview
about the ultimate truth. Did you see that?
It was a joke made with the whiskey. It doesn’t seem it contains immense theological meaning or intention. Hmm… Sanders, wasn’t the joke too serious? Anyway, a joke is just a joke. Let’s not take it too seriously.
