CLAS0308

Seminar in the New Testament

Seminar in the New Testament: Pauline Letters
In this seminar we will examine Paul and his letters. After an opening survey, we will focus on two themes, one theological and the other sociological. The theological theme will be Paul's interpretation of the death of Jesus. The sociological theme will be the organization and structure of the Pauline mission, giving special attention to its financing. Though seemingly quite distinct, the two themes were closely related in Paul's mind. We will try to determine why he linked them so closely. CLAS 0308 students will prepare selected texts in Greek for an additional one-hour section. (RELI 0180, RELI 0280, RELI 0281, CLAS 0104, or GREK 0102) 3 hrs. sem.
