Introduction to Paul

September 19, 2014 - November 15, 2014


Introduction to Paul: THE SELF-PROCLAIMED APOSTLE IN TEXT AND CONTEXT with Dr. Matthew Anderson.

This course looks at the person, the historical situation and the New Testament texts associated with the person of Paul. In recent years long-established understandings of Paul have shifted: the so-called “new perspective” is no longer new, and the “radical new perspective” has not replaced it. Academics are questioning everything about Paul’s relationship to other Jews, to the Torah, and to the non-Jewish world, and even the definitions of the terms themselves. Questions of definition, literary purpose and historical situation will give students an introduction to the major issues in Pauline studies at present.
