RBL Highlight

I just finished reading Andreas Köstenberger's review of Mike Bird's Jesus and the Origins of the Gentile Mission. Köstenberger in the end is not convinced that Jesus' ministry to the Gentiles was active and as a corollary, sees this activity primarily taking place subsequent to Jesus' crucifixion, resurrection, following "the salvation historical logic, pervading the Gospels and Acts, that places the mission to the Gentiles squarely in the period subsequent to Pentecost" (3).

I am anxious to see if Mike has a rejoinder to this review(er).
