TMNT 7028 Later Pauline Writings (Fall: 3 )
This course engages in study of (1) Ephesians and Colossians, and (2) the Pastoral epistles (1-2 Timothy and Titus), treating these two groupings as representatives of second and third generation Pauline thought, respectively. Additional early Christian texts concerning Paul (e.g., Acts of the Apostles, Acts of Paul, 1 Clement; Prayer of the Apostle Paul) will also be considered. The primary focus of the course will be an exegetical analysis of the New Testament texts under view along with an explication of selected topics within them (e.g., Christology, ecclesiology, ethics, heresy, household codes, liturgical traditions, paraenesis, the role of women).
