Guess who's back? Dr. Pam Eisenbaum IS... get ready to rock on with Pam as she continues brewing up some Pauline theology based on her book, "Paul Was Not A Christian: The Original Message of a Misunderstood Apostle." Eisenbaum, an expert on early Christianity, reveals the true nature of the historical Paul. She explores the idea of Paul not as the founder of a new Christian religion, but as a devout Jew who believed Jesus was the Christ who would unite Jews and Gentiles and fulfill God’s universal plan for humanity. Ryan Miller and Janel Apps-Ramsey gather with Dan Rosado, Christina Lee and Jeff Gelber for this episode. Cheers and keep brewin', friends!
Pamela Eisenbaum is professor of Biblical studies and Christian origins at Iliff, and is associate faculty of the Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver. One of four Jewish New Testament scholars teaching in Christian theological schools, she is the author of The Jewish Heroes of Christian History: Hebrews 11 in Literary Context, Invitations to Romans, and most recently, Paul Was Not a Christian: The Original Message of a Misunderstood Apostle. She has published many essays on the Bible, ancient Judaism and the origins of Christianity, and is an active member of the Society of Biblical Literature. A passion for working with ancient manuscripts has increasingly informed her research. Professor Eisenbaum has experience working with the Dead Sea Scrolls and spent time at the Chester Beatty Library in Dublin studying the oldest surviving manuscript of Paul’s Letters (dated c. 200 C.E.). She appeared in the ABC documentary, “Jesus and Paul: The Word and the Witness.”
