TQQ: The Religion of Paul: Christian Judaism or Christianity?

  • Course Dates: Tue 8 May 2018, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Paul made his most indelible mark as ‘the apostle to the gentiles’, but his understanding of Christian mission went through more than one phase.

What are the presuppositions of the change of emphasis from ‘preaching circumcision’ to becoming ‘the apostle to the uncircumcised’? What are the implications of what has been termed his great social experiment, the sharing of table fellowship across the ethnic divide? Does that change mean that Paul became the founder of a new religion?

Advance booking not required, simply come along on the evening. For further information about Theology Quest and Questions, visit our TQQ page or contact Alison Ogden (aogden@sarum.ac.uk; 01722 424826) or David Catchpole (drc@sarum.ac.uk).
