The course will provide an introduction to the theology of Paul as observed in his letters. Attention will be given to how Paul’s distinctive theology was formed in Jewish as well as Graeco-Roman backgrounds, and how he employed a challenging mission practice in service of his Gentile churches. While there will be a focus on1 Thessalonians, I Corinthians, and Philippians, you will also explore theological topics that span all his letters, keeping in mind the life and mission in Sri Lanka, as well as several key issues pertaining to Pauline scholarship.
