This course will introduce students to the major themes of Pauline theologies represented by New Testament texts and, where appropriate, other New Testament and extra-canonical literature. These theologies will be situated in the social matrix of antiquity and students will learn to identify the interaction of theology and culture implicit in these theologies. Students will assess the relevance of these theologies for Christian existence in society and the critical issues entailed in their contemporary appropriation, and explore a variety of approaches to Pauline texts (minimally feminist, non-eurocentrist, post-structuralist). This course will introduce students to the critical scholarly debates in Pauline studies and introduce students to an understanding of textual criticism, manuscript traditions, and scholarly debates concerning the formation of the Christian canon.

Pre-requisites: None (students who have not had NT500 – Synoptics in which they learned the Greek alphabet, will need to learn the alphabet on their own prior to taking NT501)
