Rediscovering Paul: The Misunderstood Jewish Apostle to the Nations
Apr 17 & 24
Rediscovering Paul: Misunderstood Jewish Apostle to the Nations is an ONGROUND ONLY mini course held at the Messianic Studies Institute (4950 Morse Road, Columbus, Ohio 43230) from 7:00–9:30pm TWO WEDNESDAYS: Apr 17 & 24.
If we are honest and not naïve, our attempt to understand the Apostle Paul from his writings will absolutely never be finished! Many people who think they understand Paul actually misunderstand him. Too many think they understand Paul through only two of his letters, Galatians and Romans. However, these are situational letters NOT Paul's systematic theology! This is a course about finding our ways through the sometimes difficult maze of Paul's writings (see 2 Peter 3:16) to better understand him on his own terms.
