ZUMSTEIN, Jean. Die boodskap van die kruis as die middelpunt van Pauliniese teologie. STJ [online]. 2017, vol.3, n.1, pp.495-513. ISSN 2413-9467.

Within early Christianity Paul of Tarsus is a representative of the kerygmatic tradition in which Christ's death and resurrection are viewed as the central event of salvation. In this sense he adopts the traditional interpretations of Jesus' death. However, he also reverses traditional hermeneutics by suggesting a new reading of Christ's death, called 'theology of the cross'. This innovative interpretation considers the cross as the exclusive locus of God's revelation, his judgment and salvation. This way of interpreting forms the structural backbone of Pauline theology.

Keywords : Cross; theology of Paul; theology of the cross; revelation.
