The Paulcast, curated by Kurt Willems, is a new podcast devoted to the study of the most famous Apostle. He's been read to justify almost every agenda. People have reacted against such agendas and have let go of any hope that Paul is anything more than a misogynistic chauvinist. But who is Paul, really? What if Paul was revolutionary? What if Paul's letters were read in a world where his ideas were dangerous? What if Paul actually proclaimed world-changing news unlike anyone had before? In The Paulcast, Kurt Willems looks at issues pertaining to relevant scholarship, (radical) new perspectives on Paul, Jewish and Roman contexts for understanding his letters, important Pauline scholars and books, and Paul's ongoing relevance for regular folks today. In addition, Kurt will occasionally interview important voices from a variety of perspectives who will help us wrestle with the major questions that come out of the study of the historical Paul.
In this episode, Kurt talks with Mark Nanos, one of the key voices in the Paul within Judaism school of scholarship (sometimes called the "Radical New Perspective"). We chat about Paul, Amish people, Judaism, and Jesus.
Hi David! I am just now seeing this comment since I usually get them on the Paulcast website. Even so, thanks so much and I'd look forward to the book!!!! Let me know if you want to have a conversation on the podcast about it sometime.

I have just found your podcast on Paul. Well done. I'm a fan of Nanos and this was a very good segment on his theology. I'm doing a second edition of Rediscovering Paul for IVP and wanted to put segment on Nanos and Paul within Judaism in the book. Keep up the good work.
