Aims/Description: This module will focus on one of the major authors in the New Testament, Paul, who has had an immensely great impact and influence on the formulation of Christian theology and praxis.Paul's letters, written 'on the go', contain no systematic theology, but offer a fascinating glimpse of earliest Christian theological reflection.This module aims to explore the rich and fascinating world of Paul by examining his thoughts and writings. In particular, the module will focus on Paul's views on God and human beings, Christ and the Spirit, Christian hope and love, underpinned by the individual experiences of Paul as a Jew from the first century.
