Abstract: The identification of “the weak ones in the faith” and “the strong ones” in Paul’s Letter to the Romans (14,1–15,6) has traditionally been seen as a test case for propagating Gentile-Christian liberty over against Jewish-Christian slavery to ritual within the so-called “Romans Debate”. The presupposition lying behind these readings is often taken for granted; namely that Paul heralded a Torah-free gospel. Does the revisionist “New Perspective on
Paul” that aims at a more philo-Judaistic reading of the apostle, offer a different perspective in this regard?
