Unity and Diversity in Christ: Interpreting Paul in Context: Collected Essays,
Willian S. Campbell, Cascade Books, 2013, page 74
Wanting to make sure that Paul's voice is not misheard, Campbell continues his argument:
It could, of course, be argued that this revised reading ...
of Paul having a Jewish context, vision and priority
... emerges from post-Holocaust guilt and that we are now trying to update our image of his to suit a revised understanding of what constitutes liberal Christianity. We ae perhaps, after all, still "discovering" the image of Paul we expect to find. Whatever our response to this issue, it is necessary to look again at some of the texts where our conflicting images of Paul are generated, and to seek afresh to assess to which image they give most support.
