Paul, Missionary of Jesus

Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 14. jan. 2008 - 240 sider

Was Paul the "second founder" of Christianity, striking off in directions Jesus never envisaged and teaching lessons Christ never endorsed? In this study Paul Barnett sets out to establish that, current theories aside, the apostle was a true missionary of Jesus, authentically extending the Lord's mission.

Arguing that Paul's own writings are uniquely supplemented by Luke's contemporaneously written narrative of the Acts of the Apostles, Barnett follows Paul on a decade of travels, examining him in his historical context and as revealed by his writings. Including maps of Paul's travels and five helpful appendixes, Paul: Missionary of Jesus is ideal for anyone interested in seeking out the historical truth of Christianity.

As a seminary student, this work was required reading for my New Testament course. Though I didn't exactly enjoy reading it, it is a wealth of information. I didn't know what to expect, but it is certainly well-written. Læs hele anmeldelsen
