Paul’s worldview shaped his theology, that is, what he believed about God, God’s people, and God’s future. When we explore his theology we begin to see his world view in vivid detail. These two are inseparable. In Wright’s words, worldview and theology are connected “in a chicken-and-egg sort of way, as opposed to a fish-and-chips sort of way.” Which comes first worldview or theology? This question reveals the interdependence of these two.
