The Apostle to the Gentiles

The Apostle to the Gentiles

(p.121) 9 The Apostle to the Gentiles
Salvation for All

Gerald O'Collins, SJ

Oxford University Press

This chapter highlights the Apostles to the Gentiles. Paul claimed a special commission from the risen Jesus. He declares twice that Christ died ‘for all’, which means that salvation is both for Jews and Gentiles. He expresses all embracing functions of Christ in terms of being an agent of universal reconciliation, the initiator of the new and final creation, the New Adam who leads all humanity, and the divine Lord of the universe. He suffers over the failure of many Israelites to believe in Jesus Christ and argues that the promise of God to Israel has not failed.
