About-

Delio DelRio offers a fresh perspective on the contemporary quest for Paul by doing the hard work to uncover the milieu few have attempted to integrate into our understanding of Paul--the Jewish synagogue. By all accounts, Paul was centered in the synagogue. Paul himself in his own letters indicates his synagogue priority in preaching the gospel, and the narrative of Acts corroborates this emphasis. We have a window into that synagogue world, says DelRio, in the literature of the Targums. DelRio uses a study of Jewish interpretive traditions in the Isaiah Targum to uncover an internal debate in the synagogue over the role of the Gentiles in the coming messianic kingdom. When Paul coined the phrase "obedience of faith" in Rom 1:5, a phrase found only in Romans in all of ancient literature, little did we realize, DelRio shows, that with this coined phrase at a crucial rhetorical juncture in Romans, Paul was plunging headlong into this synagogue debate with his own solution to this synagogue conundrum in his hermeneutic of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"DelRio is [of] a new generation of Pauline scholars pushing the boundaries of Jewish and Pauline studies. DelRio explores Paul's synagogue experience through the window of the Targumim. . . . The conversation is fresh. The exegetical vistas are promising. He has a new and engaging thesis on obedience of faith in Rom 1:5. A highly recommended must-read."
--Gerald L. Stevens, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

"[T]his monograph is not only a satisfying and complete discussion of its topic, but an original contribution to learning. DelRio has crafted a genuine thesis, and at the highest level of acumen. Its prose, logic, and presentation contribute cogently to the understanding of Paul and to the methods by which the New Testament might be related to its Aramaic and Targumic environments."
