This article discusses the much-debated tension between Jesus’ message and Paul’s message. The new Paul-paradigm changed the debate. Especially the work of J.D.G. Dunn raises the question as to whether the process of de-Lutherising Paul of necessity leads to the re-Judaising of Paul? The article concludes that there is not really a tension between the message of the kingdom of God and the gospel of the justification of the sinner.
