Paul for the Perplexed 2

posted by Scot McKnight

If you’ve ever taught Paul’s letters you know the challenge: How does one put Paul together? Or the teacher asks, Where can I begin that makes the whole become clear? Where do I tap to make this diamond fall out? […]

Paul for the Perplexed 1

posted by Scot McKnight

It seems Christianity is taking sides. Some of it is overt and conscious while most of it seems unconscious and many are not even aware this is happening. On one side are Christians who think and believe like Jesus, and […]
