Jesus & Paul: Parallel Lives

Belying the assumption that there is nothing more to discover about the similarities between Jesus and the apostle Paul, Jerome Murphy-OConnor gives us this enticing study. Extracting his information from a variety of sources - pagan, Jewish, and Christian - Murphy-OConnor imaginatively interweaves geographical, cultural, and historical elements into configurations that reveal important parallel trajectories in the lives of Jesus and Paul. Murphy-OConnor begins by discussing the births, early years, and family settings of Jesus and Paul. He continues with an examination of their education, refugee status, social class, economic position, political circumstances, cultural influences, and conversion experiences. Finally, he explores details surrounding their deaths. In the end, "Jesus and Paul: Parallel Lives" gives us incisive comparisons that include but also go beyond the Scriptures to suggest novel ways of picturing Jesus-Paul. Readers will appreciate the labors of Murphy-OConnor to contextualize Jesus, the God-Man, alongside Paul, Man of God and Apostle to the Gentiles - and will thereby have a greater appreciation for the missions of both.
