Reading Philippians after Supersessionism
Did the Apostle Paul turn his back on the Torah and his Jewish heritage in his pursuit of the Messiah? For centuries the book of Philippians has been read through a paradigm that said, “YES!” But a new perspective has emerged within the world of Christian scholars. Christopher Zoccali is one such “Post-Supersessionist” scholar who offers a very different perspective. In this conversation with Ryan Lambert, Zoccali highlights the dangers of supersessionism, affirms his belief in God’s abiding covenant with Israel, and articulates his view on the Apostle Paul’s passion that Christ-followers find their chief identity in Messiah as a fulfillment of biblical prophecy despite the social pressures and conflicts of the day.
