Meets July 3rd-31st on Thursdays and July 21st on Monday
(Dooner Hall 202A) 6pm-9pm


Course Description: The figure of St. Paul towers, not only over the New Testament, but over the first two centuries of church history. Yet Paul’s letters are difficult for us to understand – they were difficult for the early church to understand. Our early sessions will focus on Paul, the Pharisee. Next we will look at the significance of the Hellenistic letter as the genre of choice, used by Paul.

Finally, we will look at the “undisputed” Pauline letters to glean an insight into the emergent theology of Paul so we can better appreciate his genius and measure the tremendous influence this man has had on Christianity.
