Unity and Diversity in Christ: Interpreting Paul in Context: Collected Essays,
Willian S. Campbell, Cascade Books, 2013, page 11
So, to whom was the letter of Romans written? Campbell tells us:
In my understanding of the letter ... Paul in Romans addresses an almost entirely gentile audience even though Jewish issues are very much part of the discussion.. It should be noted that Jews in Romans are present only as a third party rather than in direct address, ven though the diatribal style might at points appear to suggest otherwise.
What do you think? Is that plausible?
