The authors present Paul as a Jewish emissary of Jesus and not a sixteenth century Protestant reformer. The book seems to be written for Christian scholars and for that reason may not gain the wide audience it deserves.

by Hilary Le Cornu & Joseph Shulam. Ever since the days of the Protestant Reformation, Paul’s Epistle to the Romans has doubtless been one of the most studied and yet the most misused books of the Bible. In today’s attempt to restore the Jewish roots of the Gospel in many churches and Messianic congregations, many of the problems and lessons of Romans have once again become extremely crucial and relevant for the followers of Yeshua to understand and practice.

I usually gobble up "Jewish Roots" books, and have generally not been disappointed. Shullam's book, while offering some helpful material, was a let down.

First of all, his theology is not within the evangelical camp. He holds to salvation by faitfulness and baptism (which translates to salvation by faith plus works). Repeatedly throughout the volume, when he comments on Paul's doctrine of salvation by faith, he interprets it as "by faithfulness (through baptism)..." So it is pretty obvious he has an agenda that blinds him to the true nature of grace. He takes a few verses from Romans 6 and uses that as a template for the entire book rather than progressing forward and trying to follow Paul's flow of thought.

His handling of Romans 8:30ff is absolutely awful and completely unsatisfying. The passage obviously deals with all "who love God and are called according to His purpose," (i.e., individually elected to salvation); Shullam claims these verses deal with Israel's election (a subject that does not come up until later in Romans). Terrible.

Secondly, the quotations from Jewish sources rely heavily upon the Qumran Community (aka, "The Dead Sea Scroll People"). Although many scholars (especially liberal ones) believe that John the Baptist and Jesus were heavily influenced by the Qumran Community because they do not believe that either of them taught anything unique or original, most conservatives reject this. Although it is possible that this isolated community did affect the Jewish mentality, they were not main players in Jewish life in the first century (which is why they are never referred to in the Gospels). Brad Young, in his book, "Jesus, the Jewish Theologian" makes the point on pages 15-16 (if you happen to own it).

Some of the quotations from the Apocrypha are enlightening, as are some from the Mishnah and Talmud; but most of them do nothing to amplify the text, and, as I mentioned, the frequently quoted Qumran texts are of debatable worth.

For Jewish roots information, I would recommed David Stern's New Testament Commentary as being on more solid footing. Though Stern does not offer the massive amount of material that Shullam does, the material he does offer is more to the point.

For readers who already have several good commentaries on Romans, I would recommed purchasing this book because it will add an occasionally useful insight from an acient Jewish source, so it is not a complete waste. It was simply a disappointment to me, because I have found other material from the Lederer publisher to be of great value.

This book had some good insight, but I had also found a similar commentary online for free that was as good or better and quoted some from this book. It gleaned out most the relevant stuff. Too much of the book was about the Qumran community. I expected more to be from more recognized and reputable sources such as the Old Testament, Talmud, Midrash, Josephus, etc.

This book was recommended by a Rabbi friend. I was asking many questions about what Paul is addressing in Romans, and he said I should get a copy of Shulam's book. I'm very glad I did! It's not a casual read, but is more meant for the serious student who wants to know the meaning behind things that may be lost in the English rendering, as well as a truly Jewish look at each verse and passage individually.

This commentary was a complete disappointment. It assumed the basic assumptions of most Christian commentaries written by non-Jews. The result was little additional insight into the message of Romans and much distortion of the original message of Paul to the Messianic believers (both Jews and Gentiles) residing in Rome at about the year 58.

Wow!!! What an eye opener. It is worth the money and then some. If you love HaShem with all your heart I recommend this commentary.

It is well put together and really enjoy the insight!

Excellent book with the roots that I find consistently missing in my christian community
This book is not just another book but explains how Paul wrote the letter using his knowledge of the Second Temple customs of the Pharisee sect that he had studied under.
