We are fortunate in knowing that Paul wrote to the Romans in ca. 57, that is, about twenty-five years after the historical lifespan of Jesus of Nazareth. As it happens, we are able to plot Paul’s own milestones within those twenty-five years, in particular his conversion/call about a year after the first Easter. I will argue that the year (or so) “between Jesus and Paul” was critical for the christological formulations reflected in the letter of Paul to the Romans.
