The Conflict of Religions in the Early Roman Empire

The Conflict of Religions in the Early Roman Empire 
by T. R. Glover (1910)

Close examination reveals a good deal of Judaism surviving in Paul, – a curious way of playing with the text of Scripture, {156} odd reminiscences of old methods, and deeper infiltrations of a Jewish thought which is not that of Jesus. Yet it does not affect our feeling for him--he stands too close to us as a man, too much over us as the teacher of Augustine, Calvin and Luther – a man, whom it took more genius to explain than the church had for fifteen centuries, and yet the man to whom the church owes its universal reach and unity, its theology and the best of the language in which it has expressed its love for his master.
