Readings of Impartiality

Unity and Diversity in Christ: Interpreting Paul in Context: Collected Essays,
Willian S. Campbell, Cascade Books, 2013, page 15-16

Campbell suggests that the most common reading of Romans 10:12, "for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek" should be read as "for no distinction is made between Jew and Greek", or even "for there is no discrimination between Jew and Greek". He explains:

In Romans this policy is clearly based on Paul's understanding of divine impartiality towards Jew and Greek, but impartiality implies the recignition of diversity rather than the ignoring of it.

If there is no difference, then there can be no impartiality!
