Product Description

Believing the Jerusalem Conference to be the defining moment in determining Paul's course, Thomas Phillips in Paul, His Letters, and Acts argues that the NT gives us two versions of Paul, one in his epistles and one in Acts. Phillips surveys recent scholarship on Paul and tries to build a bridge between the two pictures these different writings give. Phillips' work serves as excellent and timely introduction to the life of Paul and the contemporary debates that often drown out Paul himself.

Publisher's Description

Aside from Jesus, the Apostle Paul had the greatest formative influence on the early Christian movement. Yet who was this passionate missionary who carried the message of Christ throughout the Mediterranean world? The New Testament writings give us not one but two portraits of Paul. We read numerous details of Paul's life and relationships in the Book of Acts and we also find an additional set of details about Paul's activities in his letters. Yet how consistent are these two portraits? And which one gives us the most accurate picture of the historical Paul? In this volume Thomas E. Phillips examines the portrayals of Paul in recent biblical scholarship in the light of these two major NT portraits. Believing the apostolic conference at Jerusalem to be a watershed event, Phillips draws conclusions that help contemporary readers get a more accurate picture of Paul.
