This course is an introductory survey of the contents and background of the Pauline epistles, Hebrews, James, I & II Peter and Jude.

Paul’s letters to the church at Corinth were precipitated by several situations that arose due to the lack of Christian maturity of the believers who made up this church. Though confessing Christ, they had not come to understand the kind of values, priorities, and behaviors that accompany that confession. Thus, in many ways, these two letters have the most to offer in terms of practical instructions for daily living. By understanding the problems and solutions proposed by Paul in their original context, the student will have the necessary material to apply the message to not only his or her faith and life, but will be able to instruct others in these matters as well.
