TQQ: The ‘Gospel’ of the Son of God

  • Course Dates: Tue 17 May 2016, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

It is clear beyond all doubt that the interpretation of the significance of the crucified and risen Jesus was the all-consuming issue for Pauline Christianity.

So we will examine how far the historical Jesus was relevant to Paul’s theological outlook; what meaning should be attached to the crucifixion; how close Jesus comes to God in Paul’s theological scheme; and how far the term ‘in Christ’ provides a vital key, perhaps the most vital of all.

The world in which Paul worked and preached and exercised pastoral care was a world profoundly influenced by the reign of the emperor Augustus. How would Paul’s ‘gospel’ have been heard in such a world?

Advance booking not required, simply come along on the evening.
