RS 588 Overview

This course examines the person, the writings, and the thought of Paul of Tarsus who, after Jesus of Nazareth, is perhaps the most influential figure in the formation of the early Christian community. Beginning with Paul's story and his world, the course will employ contemporary biblical methods of interpretation as it examines his letters and studies his thought as it is expressed in those letters. These insights will then be brought to bear on the role of Paul's thinking in contemporary Christian theological thought.
