Apart from Jesus, Paul is arguably the most important figure in the history of Christianity. Paul and his legacy have continually shaped, fed, and challenged the church from the first century to the twenty first. Paul’s letters form the theological heart of much of the New Testament, and along with the memory of his ministry they have continued to be read, preached, theologically interpreted, and applied to contemporary ethical issues. Notably, Luther himself found deep personal solace and profound theological insight in reading Paul’s letters. As we pause to remember the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, it is fitting that we revisit Paul and the way he has come to be interpreted and reinterpreted over the decades and centuries. This course will focus on Saul of Tarsus, Paul the Jew and follower of Christ, Paul the revered figure of the second century church, and Paul the apostle of the Lutheran Reformation. By looking at these significant stages in Paul’s journey through the life of the church, we will gain renewed understanding and appreciation for the way Paul has been interpreted in the past and continues to be reinterpreted today.
