Who Said That?

“Like many New Testament scholars, I am largely ignorant of the Pauline exegesis of all but a few of the fathers and reformers.  The Middle Ages, and the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, had plenty to say about Paul, but I have not read it.”

Yeah, I'm fairly sure that's N.T. Wright, as well.

This was a bit too easy - Tom Wright

Why would he admit that? Wouldn't someone who's invested such a large portion of his scholarship in Paul want to find out what the church has believed about him throughout the years?

I guess NT Wright would be the most ironic answer. At least he's honest.

Just read this the other day in the WHI blog. NT Wright.

What's the point of even registering my guess. It's the same as all the others.

I'm going to have to say N.T. Wright.

It's NTW from "Paul in Fresh Perspective" p. 13... I'm reading it right now.

N T Wright.
Stunning admission to make.

My first thought was Bart Ehrman.

But if it is N.T. Wright that is a really an amazing statement coming from him, considering his "New Perspective" position.

If this is Wright does that mean he is not familiar with what the Puritan divines wrote about Paul and justification? I am presently reading John Owen's "The Doctrine of Justification by Faith" and so I would be a bit perplexed if someone of Wright's stature was not familiar with this work.

An easy guess apparently; the greater mystery is why anyone would brag about such ignorance?

Yes, N.T. Wright... However, I bet his standard of being "largely ignorant" about a New Testament topic is still well beyond most people's knowledge on the same topic.

NT Wright.
