In Preparation (Available in 2017)
“The Jewish Apostle Paul” is a unique course that sheds significant new light on the life and teaching of one of the greatest and most misunderstood Jew that ever lived – the Apostle Shaul Paulos (Saul Paul). This course courageously, yet responsibly, deals with one important matter that has not been settled: What is the relationship of Christ-followers among the nations to the Torah of Israel? In order to provide solid answers to this question, we must first deal with other basic questions. For example, how can we explain a thoroughly pro-Jewish Paul as he appears in his letter to the Romans and in the book of Acts; while he seemingly displays anti-Jewish or anti-Torah attitudes in his letters to non-Jewish Christ-followers in the Roman provinces of Galatia and the city of Philippi. The standard questions that are being asked today, although frightening to many, are indeed relevant and demand responsible, theologically balanced and historically accurate treatment.
The course is designed as ten 1.5 hours interactive sessions over a period of 3 months. The class sessions are conducted on a weekend to accommodate your schedule and enable ongoing interaction with your classmates from around the world. If you are unable to make it to a particular session, the lecture will be recorded for you, so you can see it and catch up when you become available. You can preregister for this course now and be among the first students to take part in this class.
