Letters of St. Paul - St. Thomas Aquinas (1/2)

Tuesday, May 27, 2014 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Location(s): St. Thomas Aquinas Parish

Letters of Paul [Course #608]

These letters present a great source of Christian theology.  They cover a wide range of themes as they give us insight about the Apostle’s teachings with regards to Christ and Christian discipleship, Christian living, obedience to authority, and false prophecy.  Paul’s letters encourage new Christians to live a life modeled by Christ, exhorting them to pray and care for one another.  In the same way, they clarify some difficult points of doctrine and talk about Paul’s missionary journeys, and imprisonment.

Objectives. At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand Paul’s life, conversion, and ministry
  • Be familiar with the structure of Paul’s letter
  • Describe Paul’s major theological themes
  • Recognize the authentic Letters of Paul
  • Explain the  dilemma discussed at the Council of Jerusalem
  • Understand the Pauline concept of atonement
  • Understand Pauline tradition and authorship
  • Understand the relevance of Pauline theology in today's Church


This is an advanced level course of 5 hours in the area of scripture.
