      Does anyone have any suggestions for online resources that discuss New
      Testament writers' views toward Roman authority?

      I have:

      The Gospel of Rome vs. The Gospel of Jesus Christ
      http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/religion/symposium/gospel.html
      An article by Marianne P. Bonz of Harvard university on the early
      Christian response to the theological challenge posed by "the gospel of
      Rome" promulgated in the Imperial Cult.. From the companion Web Site to
      the PBS Frontline Series From Jesus to Christ.

      Paul's Gospel and Caesar's Empire

      http://www.ctinquiry.org/publications/reflections_volume_2/wright.htm
      A discussion by N.T. Wright, the Bishop of Durham, that deals with the
      questions "If Paul's answer to Caesar is the empire of Jesus, what is an
      empire under the rule of this new lord?" and "How does Paul's gospel
      line up with Caesar's empire?". From The Center of Theological Inquiry
      Web Site.

      Paul and Caesar: A New Reading of Romans
      http://www.ntwrightpage.com/Wright_Paul_Caesar_Romans.htm
      An article by N.T. Wright, originally published in A Royal Priesthood:
      The Use of the Bible Ethically and Politically, ed. C. Bartholemew
      (Paternoster, 2002), that argues that within Paul's Epistle to the
      Romans stands a conscious and "direct challenge to the present ruler of
      the nations, Caesar himself".

      But I need more, especially on the attitudes taken in writings like 1
      Peter and the Pastorals or by the Gospel authors.

      With thanks in advance.

      Yours,

      Jeffrey
