It’s been said that the person who had the most influence on Christianity wasn’t Jesus – but Paul.
Paul, a devout Jew turned Jesus follower, wrote most of the books in the New Testament of the Bible. While Paul never met Jesus personally, he had a notable conversion experience that filled him with a zeal and drive that inspired him to travel extensively founding churches, ministering to new congregations, and writing letters that have turned into some of the most popular writings in the history of the English language.
That’s why understanding who Paul was and what he wrote is so important to us as we seek to build our personal faith. George Guthrie knows all about this. He is a scholar, author, New Testament professor, and student of Paul. In this course, George will help us learn:
- Who was Paul?
- What was Paul trying to get across?
- A Survey of Pauline literature
- Criticisms and controversies surrounding Paul
This course is perfect for every member of your congregation, especially those who are interested in deepening their understanding of the Bible. This is a great way to inform and begin discussion around this important Bible figure.
