Guy Waters examines Paul's explicit quotations of Deuteronomy 27-30, 32, as well as his "explicit, verbal references" to Deuteronomy: texts that are not attended by a citation formula but are recognizably texts of Scripture because of substantial verbal correspondence between the Pauline text and the text of the LXX in question. The author investigates whether these quotations and references evidence any particular pattern of reading, and what relationship Paul's readings bear with contemporary Second Temple Jewish readings of these chapters of Deuteronomy. He also analyzes the relationship to other early Christian readings of Scripture, and to Paul's self-conception as apostle to the Gentiles. He concludes that Paul, outside Romans, understood both Deuteronomy 27-30 and Deuteronomy 32 as distinct units within Deuteronomy. These two units come together only in Romans, where Paul reads Deuteronomy 27-30, 32 in order to explain the particular circumstances of his apostolic ministry. Paul also warrants the entry of the Gentiles into the people of God and gives expression to a future hope for Israel. These particular readings are often formally parallel with contemporary Second Temple Jewish readings of these chapters of Deuteronomy but conceptually independent from them. These readings suggest that the reading of Scripture was a key part not only of Paul's identity as apostle to the Gentiles but also of his apostolic labors in training his Gentile churches.

"...this study is well-researched and engages heavily with other scholars. Waters provides helpful discussions of text-critical issues, the interpretation of the end of Deuteronomy in Second Temple Judaism, and the exegesis and function of many biblical citations and references in Paulís letter."—Kenneth D. Litwak, Asbury Theological Seminary in Review of Biblical Literature, December 2007
