“Coming to grips with Christianity means coming to grips with Paul.” - Luke Timothy Johnson.
Second only to Jesus, no one person factors into the New Testament more prominently than the Apostle Paul. Students will explore the conversion, missionary travels and theology of St. Paul of Tarsus, as well as the development of the early Church. Students will also explore Greco-Roman letter writing styles and ancient debate skills in order to understand the structure and theological make up of Paul’s work. After, students will engage in a careful reading and thoughtful critical investigation and analysis of several of the Letters of St. Paul.
