Romans and Galatians

BIBL 223
Biblical Literature and Interpretation

This course will focus on two books by the Apostle Paul that are often studied together because of their thematic similarities.  The setting of each within Paul's ministry will be examined, as will the social and historical contexts that occasioned the writing of these epistles.  Special emphasis will be placed on identifying the key elements of Paul's distinctive "gospel" as it relates to both Jew and gentile.
