NT395 Perspectives on Paul: Reformation and the New Perspective

4 ratings
Modern interpreters of Paul’s writings have typically assessed these texts in light of the exegetical and theological work of John Calvin, Martin Luther, and Philip Melanchthon. In the last few decades, a contrasting interpretive outlook—the “New Perspective” on Paul—has been articulated and developed by N. T. Wright and other scholars. This New Perspective, relying on a different set of assumptions regarding the Jewish context in which Paul lived and wrote, presents a different understanding of many of Paul’s core teachings. This Mobile Ed course offers a focused description of both the traditional perspective and the New Perspective, comparing them to one another and allowing students to assess Paul’s view of man, conscience, and sin. You will be led through an example text, providing you with interpretation skills that will allow you to explore the New Testament and determine the true relationship between faith and works in each text.
