Many people today have a negative view of Paul. He is accused of not being a faithful follower of Jesus because of his failure to refer much to Christ’s early life and teaching in his letters. He is seen as a freelance who did his own thing with the Christian faith, changing Jesus’ good ideas and introducing bad ones, especially about women and sex. He is also often thought to be arrogant and obscure.
But was Paul a narrow-minded maverick who meddled with the gospel? In this book, David Wenham seeks to address these doubts about the ‘apostle to the Gentiles’ and to tell something of the true story of Paul and Jesus.
With the Logos edition of Paul and Jesus, all Scripture references are linked to your Greek texts and preferred English translations, giving you the tools you need for academic research, sermon preparation, or personal study. This title is a vital addition to the libraries of pastors, students, and anyone interested in understanding the most significant developments in Pauline studies in recent decades.
