(p.174) Conclusion
Christ among the Messiahs

Matthew V. Novenson

Oxford University Press

The conclusion summarizes the argument of the book and draws some implications for future research. Contrary to much previous research, Paul cannot be rightly understood as a non-messianic or anti-messianic thinker. The particular contours of Paul’s messianic christology, however, remain to be described in greater detail. Moreover, it is clear that Paul illustrates a range of features that are otherwise attested only in a fragmentary way in other Jewish messiah texts from the same period. A thorough description of early Jewish messianism, incorporating the Pauline evidence, remains to be done. If, as most scholars now concede, Paul is a source for early Judaism, then he is also a source for early Jewish reflection on the messiah, about whom he clearly had much to say.
