NEWT 772F

Paul as Pastoral Strategist, New Testament

{REL[1070][instructor]r5GQH6T9REL}

The apostle Paul spent most of his time on the road (without Jack Kerouac) but kept in touch with his house churches through his letters. It is possible, therefore, to search his letters for insights into his work as a pastoral strategist. How did Paul attempt to move house churches away from their participation in the Roman dominated temple systems in the pre-industrial cities of the eastern Mediterranean. How did his “gospel” spell good news and bad news for various members of the house churches he established and left behind. How did his letters function as his physical presence could have done.This course fulfills the NEWT upper-level requirement.
