This article is the second part of a two-part article. This article argues for the authenticity of the Areopagus speech in Acts 17 as Pauline rather than a reconstruction of Luke. It responds critically to the views of Dibelius.
Looking at the themes of the kingdom of God and justification, this article looks at the question of the relationship between Paul's and Jesus' preaching. Evaluating the paradigm shift in Pauline studies (e.g., by James Dunn), the author discusses the relationship between the kingdom and individual justification.
