Adult Sunday School

Paul

Who was Paul? Who is Paul?
Sundays, 9:30am – 10:30am

Happy New Year! It’s time for a new topics in Adult Sunday School. Last summer, we read some of the letters of Paul, and we resolved to come back to Paul at a later date, because it felt like we had a lot of unfinished business! For the next couple of months, we are going to focus on Paul as a person and on his archive – all the letters attributed to him in the Bible – as a whole. We are going to dive into live debates about who Paul was, and what that should mean for how we understand Paul and his legacy today.

For starters, we are going to think about how our understanding of Paul has changed over time. Another way to think about this is that we are going to look at how our own contexts as Christians, throughout the history of Christianity, has influenced what we thought Paul, a man who lived in quite a different context, was saying. This conversation has led to lots of exciting and contentious scholarship about Paul over the past few decades, which is what we will turn to over the next few weeks!

So how should we understand Paul? As a Roman? A Jew? A person or a movement? A lover of hierarchy or of liberation? A dualist or a materialist? A hero or a villain? Come join us and help us decide 🙂

As always, no prior knowledge about any of the topics of the weeks is expected, and you are welcome to join even if you don’t have the chance to engage with the material for the week! We keep it very informal. The more perspectives, the better.
For the first week:

For this week:

  1. Read 1 Corinthians, focusing on chapters 1, 4, and 5
  2. Read Ch 6 of Paul the Apostle: His Life and Legacy in Their Roman Context by J. Albert Harrill
  3. Watch this video, paying particular attention to the second half, about the New Perspective on Paul.
