About this Class

This is the second part of an introductory course to the New Testament, covering the books from Acts to Revelation. These lectures were given at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky during the spring of 2003.


Lecture 21

Paul defends his apostleship and explains that the foundation of our relationship with God is based on faith, not works.

Lecture 22

Paul begins by defending his apostleship. He then explains justification by faith and gives some ethical exhortations.

Lecture 23

Most people agree that Paul wrote both letters to the Corinthians. He answered questions from people in the Corinthian church and addressed problems that had arisen.

Lecture 24

In 1 Corinthians, Paul emphasizes unity and diversity in the body of Christ, and responds to questions about marriage, spiritual gifts and the Lord's Supper.

Lecture 25

Paul defends his actions and apostleship and encourages the people in the church in Corinth to contribute to his collection for the poor in Jerusalem.

Lecture 26

The content of Paul's letter to the church in Rome was shaped by the ethnic background of the congregation and the challenges they were facing at that time.

Lecture 27

The outline of Paul's letter to the Romans indicates his understanding of the fundamental concepts of the gospel.

Lecture 28

Paul wrote Romans from the perspective of his calling as the Apostle to the Gentiles.

Lecture 29

Paul begins Romans by stating the problem of sin and enumerating a few specific sins. His conclusion in chapter 3 is that both the Jews and the Gentiles are under the wrath of God.

Lecture 30

The divine remedy to the problem of sin and separation from God is justification by a righteous God.

Lecture 31

The results of God's righteousness include, peace, hope, freedom, living in the Spirit and assurance.

Lecture 32

Paul was arrested in the Temple in Jerusalem, went on trial in Caesarea, and was transported to Rome and imprisoned awaiting trial before Caesar.

Lecture 33

A major theme in the book of Philippians is joy in times of adversity.

Lecture 34

In Colossians, Paul emphasizes the preeminence and supremacy of Christ.

Lecture 35

Imperative is always based on the indicative.

Lecture 36

Most scholars agree that Ephesians was written by the apostle Paul, partly because the content follows an outline that is similar to other letters attributed to him that are contained in the New Testament.

Lecture 37

In Ephesians, Paul emphasizes who we are in Christ and the mystery of the gospel.

Lecture 38

Paul writes to Philemon about how Philemon should receive his runaway slave Onesimus, who has become a committed disciple of Christ under Paul's influence and is returning to him.

Lecture 39

Luke does not record the details of Paul's death in the book of Acts.

Lecture 40

The best argument is for Pauline authorship, possibly with the help of a secretary.
