Joel Willitts has posted on the tenth, and final, chapter of Jesus Have I Loved, but Paul? – “Living Interpretations”
If I have read Daniel rightly, I am more than sympathetic to his perspective on the relationship between Jesus and Paul.

I affirm, also, his impulse to see the outcome of the story, or the effects of the story, as utmost important. Jesus lived, died and rose again to enact a Kingdom and new creation. Paul sought though a ministry patterned on Jesus’ death and resurrection to proclaim the good news of the Kingdom to the gentiles for the purpose of bringing about the obedience of faith among them (Rom 1:5; 16:26).
