An Invasive Story: Paul’s Theology Between Messianic Event and Salvation History

One of the current debates in New Testament scholarship is whether Paul’s theology was rooted in an apocalyptic worldview, whereby salvation was a punctiliar and even intrusive event, or whether it was part of an on-going story of promise and fulfillment called “salvation history.” Using Galatians as a test case, the purpose of this lecture is to show how one can bring together both “apocalyptic” and “salvation historical” readings of Paul. Mike Bird argues that the invasive action of God declared in the gospel still stands within a promise-fulfillment scheme that Paul utilizes in his theological discourse.
