Paul is a massive historical figure in the history of the church, maybe second only to Jesus. This is undeiable both in the church and to secular historians. When Paul’s writings make up such as massive part of the new Testament it’s hard not to think deeply about Paul himself, and how to view his letters. Some people are critical about what you might call ‘Pauline’ Christianity which suggests that Paul has misunderstood the life and teachings of Jesus, but whether you’re in that camp or not it’s worth pondering how the character and context of Paul have had their hand in his writings and ultimately if that’s important to how we view the Bible.
Before all that though, we chat about the news and a bit about the Sunday sermon too.
