Tim: Correct. But these calendar circumstances in no way diminish the importance of Paul’s conversion, as he was among the greatest of the missionaries spreading the words of Jesus Christ. However, if Jesus's view of the Pharisees as lax about the Law is correct (and who can deny our Lord's veracity! These are the orally memorized teachings of Jesus. Do I have shelf space in my mind for God using a second self as the medium by means of which He brings creation into existence? Jon: Well, no, I can't explain infinity. He's just using that word and taking part of its connotation... Tim: Yes. Spend a few minutes each day reading these passages and reflecting on how God’s marvelous grace offers you a life of freedom and joy. How do I know that? Tim: Yeah. Jon: That's fascinating. The same Lord is Lord of all." There he's riffing off a phrase in Isaiah, where God says, "I am the beginning and the end." You get every single number, which is infinity. Now, it's ambiguous in one sense because it could technically mean he's your master. Tim says that this passage is originally formatted as poetry, which makes sense because there are so many complex ideas being presented that poetry is the only proper way to appreciate it. 2. There's an analogy in Hebrew Bible. So you have a whole body of what Bible nerds called Jesus tradition. Tim: Yeah. Temples are also the meat markets because animals were being slaughtered there perpetually. At Iconium, Paul and Barnabas gave bold testimony to “the word of His grace” (14:3). Jon: But is there ever a point in the New Testament where the divine name is used? He declared in 1 Corinthians 8:5 that “there are many gods and many lords” (though he meant “so-called gods”), and in Romans 6–7 he treated sin as a personified or semipersonified power. As noted above, Paul paid special attention to Jesus’ death and resurrection. We've already been in this territory. Tim: He keeps going. Jon: But in a metaphoric way? So what you do to them you do to me because they are my...That's right. That's a great example. Besides, the Gospels and Acts, as well as certain Old Testament Messianic prophecies, proclaim the Son's divine nature, well before Paul came on the scene. So from whom creation is an expression of God's own creative energy. Here we go. Here's another example. "Having made peace through the cross with things on Earth or things in heaven." Tim: Oh, Israel is the son of God. Then the other thing is, can I go have a meal there? That's true in ancient Greek and Roman temples too. Thanks for being a part of this with us. and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, Remember the word of Yahweh, there's even a psalm that says it. Thus, Paul’s religion won out over Jesus’ religion. [both] in the heavens and on earth, For us, there is one God (theos), We looked at how Jesus thought of himself in relationship to God the Father. So he matches the firstborn of all creation. "That if you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you'll be saved. Thus, Paul’s rivals held that his converts were not yet among the people of God. Jon: There is one God, the Father. And now in this episode, we're going to turn to the Apostle Paul. Find free videos, study notes, and more at thebibleproject.com. Tim: Yeah, it's a barbecue pit. Paul sees his own physical suffering and spiritual renewal—”though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day” (2 Cor. These have all been committed to memory so they're floating around and they're being preserved and passed on by the circles connected with the apostles. Jon: That doesn't happen in Jewish culture, right?Tim: It did happen in Jewish culture. It was Paul, not Jesus, who originated the “Christianity” of today. Tim: That's right. The materials in the Gospels predate Paul that the final literary shape of the Gospels pause to him. Tim: Correct. This episode was edited and produced by Dan Gummel, music by Tae the Producer and the intro music is by the band Tents. Tim: Yeah. Tim: But he doesn't. Besides avoiding the deeds of the flesh, members of the body of Christ receive love as their greatest spiritual gift (1 Corinthians 13). Tim: Oh, yeah. The divine name... Jon: So the divine name Yahweh written with Hebrew letters, but then pronounced Lord? Tim: There's one Elohim. Jon: If God is transcendent and ultimately is beyond meta, then one plus one equals one. I don't understand it. Millard Erickson observes that Paul provides evidence of Jesus’s humanity in the Apostle’s letter to the Romans by using the phrase “one man” three times in regards to Jesus (Romans 5:15, 17, 19 [NASB]). Faith, Tae the Producer, Show Resources: He's the firstborn of all creation. For there's no difference between Jew and Gentile. Yeah, all as one package. This episode continues our series on God as a character in the Bible. Tim: Yeah. Who's the one by whom all things are created? Jon: Now, also in Genesis, isn't that kind of by the ruakh? Mere repentance is not enough to permit escape from the overwhelming power of sin. Feat. having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, Paul is telling us that the natural man, Adam, came first on this earth and was made from the dust of the earth. Psalm 33: "By the word of Yahweh the heavens were made." Tim: Humans are the image of God. For those of you who donate so that we can make videos and this podcast and all the resources, we are having a blast, and we're so incredibly grateful for you. Why did Paul have to engage in mission? That doesn't make sense intuitively. Further, he is an example that anyone, even the most hardened unbeliever … So think about how this works. Paul employed the language of righteousness and faith when he was using the story of Abraham to argue that circumcision was no longer necessary. So Father and Son. And then for them to say, "Next, everyone who calls on the name of Yahweh will be saved." Eden, Tae the Producer Various Jewish groups, however, expected different kings or messiahs or even none at all, and these titles therefore did not have precise meanings when the Christians started using them. It's the beginning of Gospel of Luke series. Tim: Correct. He's doing so many things right here. Christ’s death, then, defeated sin in both senses: his blood brought atonement for transgression, and his death allowed those who were “united with him” to escape the power of sin. God didn't give birth to these humans. In this grand vision of the redemption of the created order, Paul shows how deeply he believed in one God, maker of heaven and earth, and in the cosmic importance of his Son, Jesus Christ. Tim: No. It remains to be seen how practical... Tim: Notice in 1 Corinthians 8, it's just one verse. Dan Gummel, Jon Collins, Matthew Halbert-Howen, Show Music: Jon: So whenever a Hebrew reader would get to that, they wouldn't say the word they're looking at, they would say the word Adonai? This meant that through Christ’s death, the baptized believer has mystically or metaphorically died and thus died to the power of sin that reigned in the world (Romans 6:3–4). In Philippians 2:6–11 Paul states that Christ Jesus was preexistent and came to earth: he “emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness.” This sounds as if Jesus was a heavenly being who only appeared to be human. Right? whether thrones or dominions It's not the case. Tim points out that this is a sort of summit of Paul’s ideas on Jesus. Tim: God calls the family of Abraham "My firstborn son" in Exodus 4. Jon: Because they'll have a little festival in the temple? And so, Paul draws on that and puts Jesus on that shelf. So similar to what he said in the Shema in 1 Corinthians 8, "by means of him," same idea. The body of Christ is also important in Paul’s discussions of behaviour. Then look what he says. There's no way to truly explain this poem. So that's a category already. It shows that Paul equated the words of Jesus quoted from Luke 10:7 to OT scripture, viewing both as the infallible word of God. According to Paul he was also a teacher and that how he spread the Good News. Paul thought that membership in the body of Christ really changed people, so that they would live accordingly. The early Christians just adopted the tradition that was centuries old by this point, which is not saying the syllables of the divine name. So Oremus has misconstrued the relevance of Jesus’s teaching to the homosexual question. Jon: I mean, someone must have translated the divine name into Greek. Jon: Let's talk about it again. You can ask me questions like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAvYmE2YYIU&t=1s, What is God's Name? What I remember you saying is that at very practical level from the firstborn child, that means I get the inheritance. Which tells you that this is already common knowledge, common talk. I just encourage if you are listening to the podcast, go get out Colossians 1:15-20, memorize it and spend a long time pondering it. Tim: Not when the events happened but when the texts came into existence. Be on the lookout for your Britannica newsletter to get trusted stories delivered right to your inbox. Here's something significant and it's counterintuitive at first when you hear it because the four Gospel accounts come at the beginning of the New Testament and then the book of Acts and then you get the letters of Paul and the other apostles. It's a concept we can't understand. Those who are in Christ will be transformed into a spiritual body like Christ’s when he returns, but they are already being “transformed” and “renewed” (2 Corinthians 3:18; 4:16); the “life of Jesus” is already being made visible in their mortal flesh (4:11). Jon: It's very weird for him the first time to say, "Jesus is Lord, and by that I mean master." He seems not to have defined the person of Jesus metaphysically (for example, that he was half human and half divine). Tim: That's right. The verb “to put one’s faith in” or “to believe” (the same Greek word, pisteuein, may be translated both ways) appears 49 times in the undisputed letters, while the noun “faith” (or “belief”) appears 93 times. Once Christ defeated all of his enemies, including death, he would turn creation over to God, so that God would be “all in all” (1 Corinthians 15:20–28; Romans 8:18–25). Tim: Well, that's because he is Yahweh. After his death and resurrection, his followers regularly referred to him as the Messiah (Acts 2:36: “God made him both Lord and Messiah”). This one's awesome. Instead of saying it aloud like you do when you read the Hebrew text, you see the four letters of the divine name and say, "Adonai," they actually put in the Greek translation of the word Adonai, which is kurios, Lord. So he's drawing on that category. We're going to talk about God. Jon: His point here is that both Jews and Gentiles are under the same to the same family name? And one day, once my parents are gone, it'll just be me. Jon: This is about the identity of God, and we're going to be in the New Testament looking at what Paul has to say about the identity of God. Jesus is the one through whom all things are reconciled. Paul sometimes shows knowledge that “the Christ” was a title, not a name, but more commonly he referred to Jesus as “Jesus Christ,” “Christ Jesus,” or even “Christ,” as in Romans 6:4: “Christ was raised from the dead.” Hi I’m Support Bot! Jon: Which is Jesus is Lord. A part of the body of Christ, for example, should not be joined to a prostitute (1 Corinthians 6:15). Jon: Sorry. The language of faith is ubiquitous in Paul’s letters and has a great range of meaning. Tim: I mean, that's what the words mean. Tim: But for this point, he's drawing upon the tradition and identifying Jesus as the wisdom of God. Israel... Tim: Visible and invisible.Jon: So visible thrones and invisible thrones? Tim: To have a party. That's all happening right from the very beginning. Jon: Or wouldn't it be nice if he would have said Jesus is Yahweh? That is the view that he accepts as OBVIOUS and AGREED UPON between himself and the Corinthians. Jon: Jesus and the identity of God. You can see the logic. We did the whole thing on the origin of the Gospel. all things have been created through Him and to himself. The same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him for - quotation from the Old Testament book of Joel - everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Jon: He's not just my master, he's master of everyone. The Shema in Deuteronomy 6:4-5: He takes this prayer that was so embedded into his being and he adapts it. Nevertheless, he goes on to contrast Jesus’s attitude with that of the apostle Paul. We are a crowdfunded project by people like me. So think Genesis 1. He needed to engage in mission because the fundamental sin of human beings is the failure to honor and praise God. Since neither “messiah” nor “son of God” automatically conveys a specific meaning, the significance of these terms must be determined by studying how each author uses them. So we're looking at the earliest Christian literature, the earliest expressions of Christian belief that were written down are the letters of Paul. And really they just got it and burn up some parts and then you get all the meat to go celebrate. In one breath, this is one sentence. We are entering into the last stretch in our conversation on the identity of God. Tim: Yeah, there you go. Here he's just focusing on the Father and the Son because it's making his point. For this reason, scholars concur that Luke has a different view than Paul does about whether Paul was an actual appointed apostle of Jesus - an Apostle with a capital "A." Jon: In a metaphoric way he did. Super widespread. Tim says that Paul has basically inserted Jesus into the Shema. I'm the one through whom the legacy will continue. At some point, his adherents also began to refer to him as “Son of God.” Paul employed both “Christ” and “Son of God” freely, and he is also responsible for the widespread use of “Christ” as if it were Jesus’ name rather than his title. It makes sense why he's using poetry to explain this, because how else...there's no language adequate. Jon: You know, when you said, "One plus one equals one," that made me think of is just infinity plus infinity equals infinity. Then he goes on to quote from the Old Testament book of Joel. Muslim views. He would probably be a little bit more careful. Someone had to tell you. And you find these comments that he makes that are just astounding. Again, this isn't just punting to mystery. Tim: It's a long time ago. So Paul picks up the language of that and applies it in a similar dynamic where you have Greek and Jewish Christians living in a really dense Greco, Greek and Roman city, ancient Corinth with idols temples everywhere. In the Acts of the Apostles, Paul proclaims, “The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to … Tim says the analogy of 1+1=1 is a mathematical analogy to show how Paul reasons that Jesus and God the Father can be one and separate at the same time. Jewish tradition by this time, the Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures has been available for a couple of centuries now. From whom are all things. This movement was founded by Jim Wallis, Tony Compolo, Brian McLaren, and Shane Claiborne. How does God create in Genesis 1? Tim: Yeah, you're right. We don't need to say anymore. Jon: And then, when the all the Hebrew Scriptures are translated into Greek, instead of translating the Hebrew letters into Greek letters, they just said, "Let's just use the word Adonai.". Originally, Jesus had only one name, “Jesus”; he was referred to as “Jesus from Nazareth” (Matthew 21:11), “Joseph’s son” (Luke 4:22), or “Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth” (John 1:45) when greater precision was necessary. Scriptures wrongly applied to appear that Paul did not view OT as infallible ” 12 Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. During his lifetime his disciples may have begun to think of him as the Messiah (“Christ” in Greek translation), the anointed one who would restore the fortunes of Israel. Even before, I'm sure. But the literary works that we know as the Gospels are mosaic of all of that material that was happening. He's made a little messianic Jesus style Shema prayer right here. Tim: That's right. We believe the Bible is a unified story that leads to Jesus. It's one of these things where when we're talking about the complex unity of the God of the Bible, one plus one equals one. Tim: You're right. So Jesus is Lord. What's fascinating is that he actually almost never has to argue for his views about Jesus. Tim: Yeah, the so-called gods. And Paul compares this salvation to the example of the faith without works righteousness God reckoned for Abraham(Rom.4:1-5). κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν κύριος εἷς ἐστιν. You can't comprehend it, but it's important that you believe it because it actually changes. He needed to engage in mission because human beings are separated f… With this logic, he can fit both Jesus and God the Father in the Shema comfortably. Can I buy some meat? Paul’s view, however, was that his Gentile converts could join the people of God in the last days without becoming Jewish, and he argued vociferously that faith in Christ was the only requirement for Gentiles. Tim: Which is to say Jesus is Lord. Because it seems like what he's saying when he says firstborn of all creation, it's not like God had a bunch of kids and Jesus was the oldest. Colossians 1:15, he's talking about Jesus. Tim: Yeah, that's basically it. 1. In part two (7:25-22:10), Tim and Jon examine Romans 10:8-9, 12-13: “The message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved…. Tim: Yeah. Read Acts c… Most frequently, however, the verb means “to put one’s entire confidence and trust in Christ,” as in Galatians 2:20: “the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God.”, In Galatians and Romans the phrase “be justified by faith in Christ, not by doing the works of the law” is used to oppose the view of some Christian missionaries that Paul’s Gentile converts should become Jewish by accepting circumcision and Jewish law. Tim: And so, why that's interesting is that Paul, the way he talks about Jesus is the same kind of highly exalted view that we find in the Gospel narratives that technically post- date Paul. That he is God, he is a part of the complex unity that is God's identity and he is the first real human who's passed through mortality into the new humanity. Paul’s View of Jesus as an Angel. Here’s a bit from my chapter 7 of How Jesus Became God where I talk about why I think Paul understood Jesus, before coming to earth, to have been an angel. Even Jesus, after His baptism when the heavens opened and the Spirit of God descended upon Him as a dove, and the voice from heaven cried out, “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased”…immediately after that, Jesus was plunged into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil…to fast and to pray for 40 days. Paul’s universe included regions below the earth (Philippians 2:10); “the third heaven” or “Paradise” (2 Corinthians 12:1–4); and beings he called angels, principalities, rulers, powers, and demons (Romans 8:38; 1 Corinthians 15:24). Joel 2:32: Hebrew: “Everyone who calls on the name of Yahweh will be saved.”, Joel 2:32 Greek Septuagint: “Everyone who calls on the name of Kurios will be saved.” “Jesus is Lurios”, Romans 10:9, 13: “Everyone who calls on the name of Kurios will be saved.”, Tim moves on and talks about Jesus and the Shema in 1 Corinthians 8:4. If Paul's view were correct, then Jesus impliedly condemned obedience any longer to the Law by criticizing the Pharisees. Tim: So he's mixing three of our categories here of Yahweh the one God. He believed in a "spiritual" body/entity that resided in heaven, not on earth. Anyways, one plus one equals one. God Tim: And that's because, the poem goes on, "he is before all things and in him." Tim: Yeah, they'll eat the animal that has been sacrificed. "Concerning eating food sacrificed to idols, we know that there's no such thing as an idol." Jon: For there is one Elohim. For Paul, however, Jesus’ death allowed believers to escape not only the consequences of transgression but also the power of sin that leads to transgression. And who is the one God for Paul? For in him it was the [Father's] good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell Jon: So I have status, in that I am the preeminent one in this family, because I'm the firstborn amongst all my siblings. In later Christianity it was sometimes supposed that “works of the law” are “good deeds” and that Paul thus set faith in opposition to good works. and He is the beginning, Tim: That's right. That's interesting. You're right. Its focus was not upon the identity of Christ but upon the work of Christ. Jon: Right. Jon: Right? “Therefore concerning the eating of foods sacrificed to idols, we know that there is no such thing as an idol in the world and that there is no God but one. He just assumes it as if it's just the thing. . Let's try and make an argument. This means that while Jesus’ death brought a New Testament wherein the whole world could be saved. People have natural life first; that is, they are born into this earth and live here. For the chronology of Paul’s ministry, there are also some extra-biblical data: According to Josephus, Herod Agrippa I was made ruler of... By signing up for this email, you are agreeing to news, offers, and information from Encyclopaedia Britannica. So this is talking about the One God as creator. What's interesting is, a lot of Paul's most dense statements about Jesus are found in poems that are embedded in his letters. Now we have two infinities. The escape, rather, requires being “buried with” Christ through baptism. • Episode 20, God Q&R 3 - Questions About Jesus' Identity. There you go. Jon: One Lord. Tim: 1 Corinthians 8: “Yet for us, there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for him, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things and we exist through him.” It's a little poem. What he is talking about is Jesus as firstborn was a well-known Hebrew Bible image, both in God's own speech and another people speech to talk about the one who...If you want to use a category for the one who's so closely identified and even shares flesh and blood and is the embodiment of the status of the Father, it's the firstborn son. Tim: Luke. This has been a really long conversation. Paul tells us in verse 46 that the natural came first and after that the spiritual. Only from there do they then obtain spiritual life. Paul describes Jesus as the first fruits of the resurrection for His time in history, and subsequently this resurrection is made available for all of humanity from Adam on down for those who are in Jesus. Jon: Visible dominions and invisible dominions. Jesus obviously went around saying and doing things, and a lot of those were really easy to memorize. He made people believe that they could really change for the better, and this must often have happened. By means of his word and the Spirit. Namely, my representative people in the world. He's writing to followers of Jesus. The way he talks about Jesus is the same kind of highly exalted view that we find in the Gospel narratives. Let's just say the firstborn title given to Jesus ends up evoking a whole bunch of different associations and ideas. The Father and the Son. Here, firstborn is he's the first new human who's gone through death and came out the other side as the new humanity so that he might have first place in everything. He is the image of the invisible God. And because the events talked about in the gospels were the foundation events for the Jesus movement, it's hard to do a remap when you're thinking in terms of chronology. (“Righteousness” and “justification” translate the same Greek word, dikaiosynē.). Jon: That's interesting because that phrase "all things have been created through him and to himself" in... was it Romans we were looking at? Jon: So you take an infinity like every odd set of numbers that is infinity, you add that to every even set of numbers that is infinity, and what do you get? Tim: In a metaphoric way, something like that seems to be going on. Paul stands on the other side of the cross and resurrection and is able to see…that what was being accomplished in Jesus’ life was incomplete part from the cross and empty tomb. Yeah.Jon: The purpose of poetry is to sit in it or to waterski on it, or to hold it up to your face. It's not just some cute little thing to think about. So anyway, Paul's really important in the conversation of tracing what Christians believed from the very beginning about Jesus. But he also believed that the universe had multiple levels and was filled with spiritual beings. And all that's happening as Paul's writing his letters. biblical literature: The chronology of Paul. In Romans 1:1–6, however, Paul writes that God declared Jesus to be “Son of God” by raising him from the dead. whether things on earth or things in heaven. In the Septuagint, the Greek translation, that got translated as everyone who calls on the name of the kurios. What you find in them isn't some idea that like, "Well, actually, the earliest Christians just had no clue and they were just figuring it out. And there are some ancient Greek spelling of it. So the first is that he's basically stuck Jesus in the Shema. Read Acts chapter 9. Tim: Correct. Paul’s purpose in 1 Corinthians is NOT, decidedly not, to argue that Jesus really was raised from the dead physically. Tim: This is a Jewish rabbi converted to Jesus believes that he is Yahweh become human and that the God of Israel is Father who loves the Son in the power of the Spirit. So if you declare with your mouth Jesus is Kurios. 1 Corinthians 8:6, it's the Shema Jesus style. So cool. Next, Paul reiterates the fact that there is a resurrection for the dead, and there need not be a baptism for the dead by those who are alive. But instead what he says is things like this, which ends at mostly the same place. My favorite part about The Bible Project is that I don't have to necessarily read the whole Bible before understanding it, and then I can get that general summarization before I get motivated to read. That person saying "I am Jesus" never appoints Paul as an Apostle. His first warning is 8:4. Tim: Yeah. Jon: So we're going to be looking at a lot of New Testament passages? He also recognized the leader of the forces of evil, whom he called both “Satan” (1 Corinthians 5:5; 7:5) and “the god of this world” (2 Corinthians 4:4). The Greek word to render the divine name for Yahweh is Kurios, which means the Lord or master. Tim: It's about status, the preeminent status. But Paul does something interesting. and we exist for Him; I say this because some people have claimed that 1 Corinthians 15 is the chapter where Paul tries to prove Jesus resurrection. Because by means of him, all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible thrones, dominions, rulers or authorities. Oh, yes. But once you start getting into the Hebrew Bible categories of this Son of Man, this human one that's exalted to share in God's rule over the universe, and it's the one that in Psalm 110, David calls this one master, who is this one? Jon: So thrones, dominions, rulers, and authorities, are all these the invisible spiritual...? One is the Father, the other is Jesus Messiah. Jon: He's the image. Jon: But the "for him" is referring to the Father, and "through him" is Jesus. The poem is still isn't over. It factors into something, like some formulas and things. He even got killed. We're cruising through, showing how each of the main parts of the New Testament is developing the identity of Jesus as it carries forward the theme of God's identity as a complex unity. Tim: But it's there and it's a beautiful poetic form. I think the fundamental sin is dishonoring God. Here, it's very clearly one of status because the firstborn isn't someone who is created because by means of the firstborn all things were created. Tim: I think the apostles recognize that they're putting language to the indescribable. Jon: But in a metaphoric way, did God give birth to Jesus? It's always Lord. He's using the Shema to talk about idolatry. For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'”. Tim: The Father, from whom are all things and we exist for him. Tim: Maybe to bring it back to something probably from our first conversation, what many people throughout the history of Western Christianity have wished Paul would have said was Jesus is God. The question was whether his Gentile converts would have to accept those parts of the Jewish law that separated Jew from Gentile. Then he attaches matching phrases to each. Occasionally the verb means “to believe that” something is true (Romans 10:9: “believe in your heart that God raised [Christ]”), but in 1 Thessalonians it means “steadfastness.” Paul feared that the Thessalonians were wavering under persecution, and so he sent Timothy to strengthen their faith. Just as the elders come out of the city to greet the king, whose authority they have exercised in his absence, and turn to enter the city … Meaning these idols aren't themselves divine beings, these statues.
