McKnight on Jesus vs Paul

Over at Christianity Today, Scot has an article on the tension of setting up a kingdom message of Jesus up against a justification message of Paul. (Tks PK)

Some try to squeeze Jesus’ message into a Pauline mould and some try to squeeze Paul into a Jesus mould, with some unecessarily preferring one over against the other.

Evangelicalism is facing a crisis about the relationship of Jesus to Paul, and many today are choosing sides.

Scot’s article is how both kingdom and justification need to be seen within the bigger narrative of the gospel story – a story that revolves around Jesus.
