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 they claim.”
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. If you want a guided tour through the life and teachings of one of the most influential figures in the Christian church, this is it.
