"This commentary by one of Britain's leading New Testament scholars takes the reader through questions of authorship, recipients, date and purpose, considers the literary structure, the nature of history writing and the teaching of Acts, and provides the information and perspective necessary for reading to best effect what Professor Dunn believes is the most exciting book in the New Testament."--Jacket
The theology of Paul the Apostle by James D. G Dunn( Book )

55 editions published between 1988 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using Paul's letter to the Romans as the foundation for constructing a fuller exposition of Paul's whole theology, Dunn's thematic treatment clearly describes Paul's teaching on such topics as God, humankind, sin, Christology, salvation, the church, and the nature of the Christian life. In the process Dunn engages, in a concise way, with what other important scholars have said regarding each area of inquiry. His work represents a major contribution to the ongoing discussion regarding what Paul's theology is and what its continuing relevance is to the study and practice of religion and theology."--Jacket

Jesus remembered by James D. G Dunn( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on Jesus, this first volume of Christianity in the making has several distinct features. It garners the lessons to be learned from the "quest for the historical Jesus" and meets the hermeneutical challenges to a historical and theological assessment of the Jesus tradition. It provides a fresh perspective both on the impact made by Jesus and on the traditions about Jesus as oral tradition, hence the title "Jesus Remembered." And it offers a fresh analysis of the details of that tradition, emphasizing its characteristic (rather than dissimilar) features. Noteworthy too are Dunn's treatments of the source question (particularly Q and the noncanonical Gospels) and of Jesus the Jew in his Galilean context
The Cambridge companion to St Paul by James D. G Dunn( Book )

32 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and Polish and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The apostle Paul has been justifiably described as the first and greatest Christian theologian. His letters were among the earliest documents to be included in the New Testament and, as such, they influenced Christian thinking from its very beginning. This Companion provides an important assessment of the apostle as well as a new appreciation of his continuing contemporary significance. With eighteen chapters written by a team of well-known international Pauline specialists, the collection will have wide appeal and be an invaluable point of departure for subsequent studies

The partings of the ways : between Christianity and Judaism and their significance for the character of Christianity by James D. G Dunn( Book )

31 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning from Jerusalem by James D. G Dunn( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second volume of this trilogy, Beginning from Jerusalem, covers the early formation of the Christian faith from 30-70 C.E. After outlining the quest for the historical church (parallel to the quest for the historical Jesus) and reviewing the sources, Dunn follows the course of the movement stemming from Jesus 'beginning from Jerusalem.' Dunn opens this book with a close analysis of what can be said of the earliest Jerusalem community, the Hellenists, the mission of Peter, and the emergence of Paul. In the second part, Dunn focuses solely on Paul--the chronology of his life and mission, his understanding of his call as apostle, and the character of the churches which he founded. The third part traces the final days and literary legacies of the three principal figures of first generation Christianity: Paul, Peter, and James, brother of Jesus. Each section includes detailed interaction with the most important of the vast wealth of secondary literature on these matters."--
The theology of Paul's letter to the Galatians by James D. G Dunn( Book )

24 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent research into the character of Judaism in the first century has given scholars a new perspective on Paul. Nowhere is this new perspective more important than in the case of Paul's letter to the Galatians, a letter that shaped the character of the Christian religion in its early years and that remains a foundation document of Christianity. This study, the first to benefit from the new perspective on Paul, explains more clearly than ever the issues that confronted Paul and the powerful theological arguments he brought to bear in response
Jews and Christians : the parting of the ways, A.D. 70 to 135 : the second Durham-Tübingen Research Symposium on Earliest Christianity and Judaism (Durham, September 1989) by James D. G Dunn( Book )

32 editions published between 1992 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains papers from the second Durham-Tubingen Research Symposium on Earliest Christianity and Judaism that help clarify the extent to which we can speak of the parting of the ways between Christianity and Judaism. Twelve internationally respected scholars carefully analyze the chief Jewish and Christian documents and traditions from the period A.D. 70-135, drawing out what they say about the mutual relations between early Christianity and Judaism and the light they shed on the diverging trajectories of these two major religious traditions."--Jacket
The new perspective on Paul by James D. G Dunn( Book )

37 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays highlights a dimension of Paul's theology of justification that has been neglected - that his teaching emerged as an integral part of his understanding of his commission to preach the gospel to non-Jews and that his dismissal of justification "by works of the law" was directed not so much against Jewish legalism but rather against his fellow Jews' assumption that the law remained a dividing wall separating Christian Jews from Christian Gentiles. James Dunn seeks to carry forward the debate on Jewish soteriology, on the relation of justification by faith to judgment "according to works," on Christian fulfillment of the law, and on the crucial role of Christ, his death and resurrection. Full of detail and intriguing thought, Dunn's collection will enlighten any scholar of the New Testament
Jesus, Paul, and the law : studies in Mark and Galatians by James D. G Dunn( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing upon ten years of research experience, the master scholar James D.G. Dunn presents a book on a major issue in the study of Christian origins: what were the attitudes toward Jewish law within earliest Christianity? This volume not only gathers the author's significant contributions to date but also includes new material. Divided into nine parts, it is set in the wider context of a living dialogue and debate. The introduction maps out Dunn's extensive work in Pauline and Markan studies. The final chapter, "The Theology of Galatians," serves as a summary of Dunn's current position on Paul and the law and brings the volume to a convincing conclusion -- PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION
Paul and the Mosaic law by James D. G Dunn( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Epistles to the Colossians and to Philemon : a commentary on the Greek text by James D. G Dunn( Book )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul's Epistle to the Colossians merits detailed study for at least two reasons. First, it provides an unexpectedly interesting window into the character of Christianity in Asia Minor in the second half of the first century. With the information it gives about the religious tensions within which emergent Christianity was caught up, not least those between Christianity and diaspora Judaism, we begin to gain more insight into the influences and factors that shaped the transition from apostolic to subapostolic Christianity in the region. Second, Colossians represents a crucial stage in the development of Pauline theology itself. Whether it was written at the end of Paul's life or soon after his death, it indicates how Pauline theology retained its own vital character and did not die with Paul. In this volume in the celebrated New International Greek Testament Commentary, James D.G. Dunn, author of numerous well-received works on the historical origin and theological interpretation of the New Testament, provides detailed expositions of the text of Paul's letters to the Colossians and to Philemon. Dunn examines each of these letters within the context of the Jewish and Hellenistic cultures in the first century, and discusses the place of Colossians and Philemon in the relationship between the Pauline mission and the early churches that received these letters. Particular stress is also placed on the role of faith in Jesus Christ within and over against Judaism and on the counsel of these two important letters with regard to the shaping of human relationships in the community of faith
Neither Jew nor Greek a contested identity by James D. G Dunn( )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and Italian and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings James Dunn's magisterial Christianity in the Making trilogy to a close. Neither Jew nor Greek covers the period following the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 C.E. and running through the second century, when the still-new Jesus movement firmed up its distinctive identity markers and the structures on which it would establish its growing appeal in the following decades and centuries. Dunn examines in depth the major factors that shaped first-generation Christianity and beyond, exploring the parting of the ways between Christianity and Judaism, the Hellenization of Christianity, and responses to Gnosticism. He mines all the first- and second-century sources, including the New Testament Gospels and such apostolic fathers as Ignatius, Justin Martyr, and Irenaeus. Comprehensively covering an important, complex era in early Christianity that is often overlooked, Neither Jew nor Greek is a landmark contribution to the field."--
