Chris Tilling converses with Douglas Campbell about Paul

Dr Chris Tilling (St Mellitus College) and Professor Douglas Campbell (Duke University Divinity School) discuss “apocalyptic readings of Paul, prison ministry, and their books”. After a bit of idle chit-chat, they get going at 4:30 or so.

Chris Tilling is Lecturer in New Testament Studies at St Mellitus College and Visiting Lecturer in Theology at King’s College, London. He is the author of Paul’s Divine Christology (2012), the editor of Beyond Old and New Perspectives on Paul (2014) and author, together with Michael Bird, Craig Evans, Simon Gathercole and Charles Hill, of How God Became Jesus (2014). He also runs the biblical studies blog, “Chrisendom.”

Douglas Campbell is Professor of New Testament at Duke University Divinity School. His main research interests comprise the life and thought (i.e. theology and its development) of Paul with particular reference to soteriological models rooted in apocalyptic as against justification or salvation-history. His publications include Framing Paul: An Epistolary Biography (2014), and he edited The Call to Serve: Biblical and Theological Perspectives on Ministry in Honour of Bishop Penny Jamieson. Campbell has also written The Quest for Paul’s Gospel: A Suggested Strategy (2005), and The Deliverance of God: An Apocalyptic Rereading of Justification in Paul (2009).
