Public lecture: Paul and the undeserved gift

Published: Monday 15th August 2016

Gifts are normally given with discrimination, according to some criterion of value or worth. So what happens when God’s greatest gift is given without regard to worth (ethnic, moral or social)? This lecture presented by Professor John Barclay will explore why this notion has had radical effects in the history of Christian thought, starting with the apostle Paul. On the basis of the undeserved gift, Paul founded socially innovative communities, a phenomenon with significant implications for today.
