Paul's leader trouble is the prestige of the gentile peoples who're alienated from the God of Israel.

He speaks no longer as a Christian theologian, yet as a first-century Jewish instructor of gentiles responding to concrete events in those early groups of Christ-followers. As such Paul doesn't reject or critique Judaism, yet responds to God's name to be a "light to the nations."
