Pauline Letters

Unit code: BN3011L


This unit allows students to apply their knowledge of NT Greek to interpreting letters of Paul. In the process they will acquire the necessary working skills, in terms of exegetical method and tools, required for interpreting biblical texts. Students will develop an understanding of significant historical, geographical, social, cultural and religious factors for the interpretation of Pauline letters; examine the social setting, literary structure, key theological ideas, and purpose of selected Pauline letters. Detailed studies in at least two of the major Pauline letters will also provide some of the biblical basis needed for studies in systematic theology and for the task of preaching and teaching the message of the New Testament.
