EXERCISE: PAUL’S THEOLOGY The best way to solidify your understanding of Paul’s theology is to try to formulate what you have learned. Using your study guides, your Bible and your notes, answer the following questions: The story of Israel: What is a “covenant”? How did Israel become the “covenant people” of God? Of the two partners, Israel and God, who was always faithful to the covenant? What was it about the “new covenant” promised by Jeremiah that would be different from all the previous covenants? What does “Messiah/Christ” mean? Who are the “messiahs” in the Old Testament? Explain the worldview of apocalyptic Judaism: If God’s creative work is “good” as Genesis says, why is there so much opposition to God’s will in the “present evil age?” What is the future “Kingdom (Reign) of God”? Isn’t God already ruling over Creation? What was expected to happen at the shift of the ages, when the “present evil age” was transformed into the “Reign of God”? What was the Messiah’s role in the coming of the Reign of God?
