It is a pleasure to offer a contribution in honour of my colleague Dr. Dean Zweck. The editor asked if I might contribute something on the so-called 'new perspective on Paul' (henceforth NPP), which has been a topic of interest to Dean himself (Zweck 2007). I have also written on the topic elsewhere (Hultgren 2012). In this article I will discuss certain problems in the exegesis of Paul in the NPP, drawing on my previous work. In addition to the exegetical problems, I also wish to ask some historical-theological questions about the NPP. As biblical exegesis and church history have been Dean's main areas of work at ALC, it is fitting that this article encompasses both areas.
