The Apostle: An Introduction to Paul’s Theology

Few people have changed the course of history as much as Paul of Tarsus. In particular, it is hard to account for the course of western civilization without recognizing the perennial significance of Paul’s life and teaching. Impressively, the extent of Paul’s influence on the development that would follow him was already being felt within his own lifetime. For instance, during a stay in Thessalonica, Paul was brought before the city authorities and charged as one who had already “turned the world upside down” (see Acts 17:1–9).

In this course, we will examine the world changing theology of Paul the Apostle. We’ll begin by looking carefully at each of his letters before investigating what characterizes Paul’s message across the collection. By the end of the course, students will be equipped to understand Paul’s letters and his theology for themselves, and why he is simply “the Apostle” within the Catholic tradition. Finally and most importantly, students will be invited by the living voice of the Apostle to behold the glory of the Lord in the face of Christ, and join Paul in declaring that nothing can compare to the surpassing worth of knowing Jesus of Nazareth.
