Academics. Q: What earlier sections from the Christian Origins and the Question of God series would you suggest as the most fruitful portions to go back and reread so Paul and the Faithfulness of God can be understood most fully?
NT Wright: Basically the whole of The New Testament and the People of God forms a foundation on which everything else stands. Part II of The New Testament and the People of God (NTPG) outlines the method of ‘critical realism’ for historical study and the ‘worldview’ model through which we can get at the social, cultural and narrative world of a person or group.
Part III of NTPG provides a historical and theological account of the first-century Jewish world, which I then develop further in chapter 2 of PFG but which remains foundational. Part IV of NTPG outlines the early history and worldview of the church which is the framework for Paul – note especially my refutation of the common idea that ‘the delay of the Parousia’ formed a major feature of its life.
