      There have of course been many books written on monotheism (see e.g the book by Rodney Stark show above). Monotheism itself is a modern post-Enlightenment term, but this doesn't much matter. The. Monotheism is the belief in one god. A narrower definition of monotheism is the belief in the existence of only one god that created the world, is all-powerful and intervenes in the world.

    Paul did think of Jesus as God. It seems reasonable to conclude that Paul certainly had a high Christology, in which Jesus received worship and devotion, that was without clear precedent in the Judaism of the first century. From the wider context of Paul’s undisputed letters, there are a number of indications of this high devotion to Jesus. 1. considered to be the father of the Israelite people. Around BC, he and his family migrated from around Ur, Mesopotamia to a region called Canaan, all the while herding their sheep and goats. According to Jewish belief, God made a covenant with him that declared the two major beliefs of Judaism: God's plan and Canaan is the Promised Land.

    Dictionaries define “monotheism” as the belief that there is only one God; from the Greek, mono (“single”) and theos (“God”). Scholars from all Christian traditions have discussed the extent to which this term embodies the biblical view of God. The question they raise is whether the Bible recognizes the existence of other gods. Criticism of monotheism has occurred throughout S. Smith, an American biblical scholar and ancient historian, currently teaching at the Princeton Theological Seminary, wrote that Monotheism has been a "totalizing discourse", often co-opting all aspects of a social belief system, resulting in the exclusion of "others". Accusers have painted monotheism as a cause of ignorance.

Surveying New Testament writings and Jewish sources from before and after the rise of Christianity, James F.

McGrath argues that even the most developed Christologies in the New Testament fit within the context of first century Jewish "monotheism.". Lastly, as no people have been recorded or discovered with an inborn craving or race-bias making for monotheism, but on the contrary the lower and prevalent popular instinct is always polytheistic, we must attribute a profound influence to the inspiration of prophets and great thinkers to account for the victory, or even for the emergence, of monotheism at certain times among certain peoples.

Don Richardson tells a fascinating story of the “altar to the unknown god,” referred to by Paul in Acts chapter This story is based upon a number of historical documents and sources, which Richardson cites in his book.

This “image Christology” furthermore, in which Jesus serves as the protological and cosmogonical image of God, is an instance of “Christological monotheism.”. Sources. Of the 27 books in the New Testament, 13 are attributed to Paul, and approximately half of another, Acts of the Apostles, deals with Paul’s life andabout half of the New Testament stems from Paul and the people whom he influenced.

Only 7 of the 13 letters, however, can be accepted as being entirely authentic (dictated by Paul himself). This monotheism of the Jews has chiefly the result of a religious intolerance never before equaled and never since surpassed, except in the history of Christianity and Mohammedanism, the daughters of Judaism.

Jehovistic priests and kings tolerated no rivals of their god and made death the penalty for disloyalty to him. The book also touches on issues related to justification, God’s faithfulness and the church as the key symbol of Paul’s worldview.

In Paul and the Faithfulness of God, Wright combines in-depth historical and theological exegesis and his knowledge of biblical scholarship to make his tcase about Paul and his theology. The book will be useful for those interested in the academic study of the Apostle Paul. Monotheism and the Old Testament.

For more than 19 centuries, Paul was understood as the champion of Gentile Christianity over and against Judaism. But when modern scholars began to appreciate the vigorous variety of late Second Temple Judaism—and the implications of Paul’s apocalyptic commitments (which allowed for no extended future)—perspectives shifted.

Interpretations now run the gamut from Paul against Judaism.
