Wesley Hill


Paul’s methods of talking approximately God, Jesus, and the Spirit are intricately intertwined: conversing approximately anyone of the 3, for Paul, implies connection with them all jointly. in spite of the fact that, a lot present Pauline scholarship discusses Paul’s God-, Christ-, and Spirit-language irrespective of trinitarian theology.

In distinction to that pattern, Wesley Hill argues during this ebook that later, post-Pauline trinitarian theologies signify a greater strategy, beginning a clean attitude on Paul’s past speak about God the daddy, Jesus Christ, and the Spirit.

Wright, Richard Bauckham, Larry Hurtado, and others -- in mild of patristic and modern trinitarian theologies, leading to an leading edge method of an outdated set of questions.

Adeptly integrating biblical exegesis and historical-systematic theology, Hill’s Paul and the Trinity exhibits how trinitarian theologies illumine interpretive problems in a fashion that more moderen theological options have didn't do.
