The Reverse of the Curse
Paul, Wisdom, and the Law


C. Marvin Pate examines the undisputed Pauline writings and demonstrates that wherever Paul
employs the theme of wisdom, he does so to reverse the Deuteronomic curses and blessings.
The covenantal blessings rest on those whose faith is in Christ, the wisdom of God, while the
covenantal curses abide on those who attempt to obey the Torah. All of this results from Paul's
separation of Christ, God's wisdom, from the law of Moses.
In addition, the author deals with two secondary themes. First of all, he calls the 'new
perspective' on Paul into question. Secondly, a revised form of the 'Tübingen theory' is put
forth. Both of these points call scholarship back to a more Lutheran reading of the subject of
Pauline theology, emphasizing the importance of law and gospel therein.
