Description: Against Sanders's view that "election and ultimately salvation are considered to be by God's mercy rather than human achievement" (Paul and Palestinian Judaism [1977] 422) VanLandingham argues that, "in early post-biblical Jewish texts, salvation is earned, at least in the sense that there is a quid pro quo or cause and effect relationship between obedience to God in this age and eternal life in the next" (333). Even if one could argue that in the biblical account of the election God gratuitously called Abraham, that view is corrected in postbiblical texts like Jubilees, the writings of Philo and Josephus, The Biblical Antiquities of Pseudo Philo, and The Apocalypse of Abraham to show that God rewards righteousness and punishes wickedness.
