Paul and The Restoration of Humanity in Light of Ancient Jewish Traditions

Aaron Sherwood

In Paul and The Restoration of Humanity in Light of Ancient Jewish Traditions,
Aaron Sherwood questions the assumption of universalism in Pauline
thought, and finds instead that relevant Pauline traditions depict a
partly restricted and particularly Israelite restoration of humanity.
This important Jewish component of Paul’s thought remains largely
unrecognized, but Pauline and other ancient Jewish traditions
consistently present Israel and non-Israelites' uniting in their worship
of Yhwh as the restoration of both Israel and humanity.

Aaron Sherwood demonstrates in Pauline traditions the same deployment of
Israel-nations unification as in biblical and post-biblical traditions.
This suggests that rather than secondarily finding space for Gentile
justification, the restoration of humanity plays a generative role in
Paul’s theology, mission, and apostolic self-identity.
