Learn more about Paul of Tarsus
Who was Paul of Tarsus? In this course, Dr. Lynn Cohick draws from the book of Acts as well as Paul’s letters to paint a vivid picture of who he was, what he did, and what he believed. “We want to take a look both at Acts and at Paul’s letters because we want to make sure that we understand Paul not simply as someone who thinks about theology, sits at a desk, and writes letters, but also as someone who is doing—who is living out what [he] claims.”
Dr. Cohick begins with Luke’s perspective in Acts and draws attention to Paul’s desires and actions and the major events in his life. Then, using Acts as a narrative framework, she looks at Paul’s own writings to reveal more about his personal thoughts and fears.
