Hurtado on the Conversion of Paul

The Feast of the Conversion of Paul

Larry Hurtado, Professor Emeritus at the University of Edinburgh, has just written an eloquent post on the significance of January 25th in the church’s calendar: the Feast of the Conversion of Paul.

His discussion of whether or not Paul was “converted” exemplifies a responsible academic approach to difficult issues of interpretation.

He ends the post with sound advice for how best to study the apostle Paul, who is “perhaps the most controversial figure in early Christianity.”

A number of Larry’s monograph-length studies of early Christianity are available on Logos, including his famous Lord Jesus Christ and How on Earth Did Jesus Become a God?.
