Overview

Become a skilled interpreter of Paul’s letters with the help of Pauline experts like Dr. Douglas Moo and Dr. Lynn Cohick of Wheaton College, and Christianity Today Book Award winner Dr. Constantine Campbell. Read more confidently and with a stronger comprehension of the theological themes, historical background, and interpretive possibilities of each epistle. These scholars will guide you through the current literature and the latest discussions about the “new perspective” on Paul and how this theory compares with traditional ideas. You’ll explore foundational themes such as who Christ is, how the church should function, and what a Christian life looks like. You’ll also learn to perform your own Pauline research and keep your findings accessible in Logos for future study and reference.

In addition to helping you master Pauline theology and understand Paul’s letters as a whole, these courses take you through each letter verse by verse. Not only does such a methodical approach make sense when you are learning, but with your added research and notes attached, these courses will function as a personalized commentary. The next time you are preparing a sermon or study on a passage from one of Paul’s letters, all you will have to do is search in Logos and the lecture and notes you need will be there, waiting to help you.
