A surface reading of various texts in the Pauline corpus reveals a tension between particularism and universalism in Paul’s atonement theology. At times, Paul speaks of Christ’s death for “the church”, for “his people”; at other times, he speaks of Christ’s death for “all”, for the “world”. In this session, Jonathan will present a detailed examination of the particularistic and universalistic texts, demonstrating that the universalistic elements in Paul’s letters complement rather than compromise the possibility of interpreting Christ’s death as a definite atonement.
