'To the Jew first, and also . . .'

The apostle Paul and recent scholarship

From the February 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

New insight into the Apostle Paul is challenging the traditional view that he broke from Judaism to found a new religion—Christianity. Research from several New Testament scholars portrays a devoted Jewish man committed to convincing both Jews and Gentiles that the Jewish God is the God of all, and that Jesus was sent by God to bring both Jews and Gentiles to repentance and salvation.
