    • (The footnote here directs the reader to see Deidun’s summary on pp. 208-210 in support of Moo’s statement in the text, “The work of Schrage and others has shown that Paul and the other apostles were quite willing to impose specific commandments on their charges;...” Compare a similar point being made by Moo, Romans, pg. 416, where he once again cites Deidun in support.).

  • Douglas J. Moo, The Epistle to the Romans (New International Commentary on the New Testament) — pp. 54, 151, 305, 390, 391, 416, 428, 461, 464, 474, 476, 482, 484, 485, 486, 495, 496, 815, 816, 817 (a total of twenty citations in this work).
    • Pg. 305, note 58 — “On the relationship between this text and the New Covenant, and the importance of this concept in Paul, see esp. Deidun, 128.” (on 2 Cor. 3:12-18)
    • Pg. 416, note 38 — “On this, see especially the monograph of Deidun, New Covenant Morality in Paul.”
      • (This note is in reference to Moo’s statement in the text on that page, “Paul affirms here that the believer is no longer under the authority of the Mosaic law, not that he or she is under no law at all. In fact, Paul himself makes clear that the believer is still “under law” in the broader sense — still obligated to certain commandments (see Gal. 6:2; 1 Cor. 7:19; 9:20-22).”
    • Pg. 496 — “Deidun puts it like this: the Christian imperative “demands the Christian’s continuing ‘yes’ to an activity which does not originate in himself, but which is nevertheless already real and actual in the core of his being.”
    • Pg. 496, note 127 — “P. 80; cf. the whole discussion of this passage on pp. 75-80.” (the passage mentioned is Romans 8:1-13)
    • Pg. 815, note 28 — “The law protects love from the subjectivism and self-deception to which the Christian is constantly exposed, not because he is ‘unjust,’ but because he is human” (Deidun, 224).”
  • Carl Hoch, All Things New
    • Pg. 133 — “This is an exciting study of the application of the new covenant to the Christian life in Paul.”
    • Pg. 224 — “This is a very stimulating study of New Testament ethics with an emphasis on love in relation to the new covenant and law.”
  • Thomas R. Schreiner, Romans (Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament) — pp. 122, 123, 321, 398, 399n.2, 400, 404n.14, 405, 406, 411, 418n.1, 420, 421, 422, 644 (a total of fifteen citations in this work).
    • Pg. 420 — “Or as Deidun (1981: 80) insightfully observes, the relationship between the indicative and the imperative should not be construed as realizing an ideal or actualizing a possibility, nor even subjectively appropriating an objective reality. Rather, it is an ongoing yes to God’s work in us, a call to affirm God’s action on our behalf.”

    • Pg. 644n91 — “Deidun builds his whole thesis around this insight (New Covenant Morality, here especially 3-84).” The “insight” Dunn is referring to in the text is his statement concerning Romans 2:28-29 and 2 Cor. 3:3, 6, “These passages express Paul’s conviction that in the gift of the Spirit the earliest Christians has experienced the hoped-for circumcision of the heart in Deuteronomy, the hoped-for new covenant of Jeremiah, and the hoped-for new heart and new spirit of Ezekiel.”
