Have you ever wondered what the life and career of Paul, one of the first Christian missionaries, must have been like? Have you ever considered what challenges the early Christians faced as they spread the word of their savior throughout the Roman Empire? Have you ever read the Revelation to John and wondered how it relates to Paul's writings or the other books of the New Testament? In this course, we will concentrate on the life settings of both Paul and John in an attempt to understand their respective writings in their historical contexts. To achieve this understanding, we will learn and apply modern interpretative techniques to these influential works. There will be two papers (4-6 pp.), a midterm and a final exam.
