What were Paul’s core theological beliefs? What framework did he use to organize his beliefs, and how did these beliefs relate to one another? In this course, Dr. Robert Sloan explores the theological concepts and terminology in Philippians and uses these as a window into the mind of Paul. He moves you beyond a book-level understanding to understanding Paul’s theology as whole.

For a collection of focused courses that will deepen your familiarity with Paul’s prodigious New Testament writing, see the Mobile Ed: Paul’s Letters Bundle (7 courses).
