  • Written Before Winter Since Paul
    607 words
    Corinthians, the seventh book of the New Testament, was written by Paul to get across that Jesus is alive (15: 3-18) and that we will be resurrected (15: 35-38), among other things. Today there is no dispute that Paul is the author of I Corinthians. "Both external and the internal evidence for the Pauline authorship are so strong that those who attempt to show the apostle was not the writer succeed chiefly in proving their own incompetence as critics". 1 As internal evidence, Paul identifies him...

  • St Paul At Jerusalem
    11,223 words
    1. Theophilus Lover of God, a Christian, probably a Roman, to whom Luke dedicated both his Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles. Nothing beyond this is known of him. From the fact that Luke applies to him the title most excellent, the same title Paul uses in addressing Felix and Festus, it has been concluded that Theophilus was a person of rank, perhaps a Roman officer (Henneke). 2. John the Baptist John was Jesus cousin. He was to prepare a way for the messiah by baptizing people into repentance...

In this research paper I will explore these experiences and how they do and do not relate to each other. Paul the Apostle Paul was born with the name of Saul, in Tarsus ...
  • Jews And Paul To The Gentiles
    3,024 words
    Life of Paul The life of the Apostle Paul is a very long and complex story. Through much research and thought of an approach, I have found the best way to give an account is to actually recount the life that he led. In this paper I will attempt to give a testimony of how I perceived the life of Paul. In my view, his life consists of four parts: his life before the conversion, the actual conversion, his life through the three renowned missionary journeys, and the testimony he gives throughout. Th...
  • Paul's View Of Christianity
    422 words
    Paul's Letter to The Galatians When Paul attended the Jerusalem Conference, a decision was made that gentiles would be allowed to become Christians without becoming Jews first. Paul defended the gentile's right to be Christians and became the apostle to the gentiles. My question is, why would Paul, a Jew, want to be an apostle to gentiles You would think why Paul, someone who grew up in a "good" Jewish family, would not follow in the footsteps of Jewish Christian Missionaries, and require Christ...
