Product Description

A thorough investigation of the apostle Paul's sayings and dealings with money

Beginning with the apostle himself, Paul and Money first explores what Paul had to say about supporting himself as a missionary and whether, and in what context, it was appropriate to ask for money from those to whom he was ministering. A significant part of the book examines the collection that Paul initiated for the poverty-stricken Christians in Jerusalem, looking at how Paul raised funds for this key project and why he had undertaken it in the first place.

Lastly, authors Verlyn D. Verbrugge and Keith R. Krell probe other monetary issues in Paul's letters, including the problems of the Thessalonian freeloaders; Paul's message to the rich and his instructions on how the church should minister to the poor; and a few words about paying taxes, going into debt, and the issue of tithing. The book closes with a number of practical implications for Christians today.

Publisher's Description

The apostle Paul, one of the most prominent figures in the early Jesus movement, had a lot to say about money. His letters deal with real people as they lived their Christian lives in the Greco-Roman world. He finds it necessary to address "those who are rich in this present world" (1 Tim 6:17). But he also has to address those do not want to work, for whatever reason, and are "idle and disruptive" (2 Thess 3:6). Moreover, whereas most churches today have a certain socio-economic homogeneity, some of Paul’s churches had a combination of upper class wealthy people and lower class slaves worshiping side-by-side, and it inevitably created friction (esp. 1 Cor 11:17–34).

During the past twenty years a significant amount of research has been done on class-consciousness in the Greco-Roman world and on the significance of Paul’s fund-raising venture "for the poor among the Lord’s people in Jerusalem"—"the collection"—for his ministry. Relying on the surprising results of current Pauline scholarship and a careful exegesis of a variety of New Testament texts, this book offers a thorough investigation of the apostle Paul’s sayings and dealings with money.
