A place to park resources I want to share with others (including you!)
In March 2023 I am teaching an “open course” on Paul, the first century would-be apostle. I will post some of the links, resources, and slide decks here for participants.
The book by Dr Sara Parks (my wife) along with her co-authors Shayna Sheinfeld and Meredith Warren, is titled Jewish and Christian Women in the Ancient Mediterranean. It was published by Routledge in 2022.
The book that I’ve mentioned several times is by John G. Gager. It’s called “Reinventing Paul” (Oxford University Press, 2002 for the paperback).
Some great places to learn more about Paul (from the last slide of the above slide-deck):
•Bible Odyssey. A wonderful resource for getting into almost any topic about the Bible. For Paul, start here: https://www.bibleodyssey.org/people/main-articles/paul/
•Even though it’s now a bit older, PBS’s two-part series “From Jesus to Christ” is still a wonderful introduction to learning about the earliest Jesus followers, including Paul: https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/documentary/showsreligion/
•I have some podcasts on Paul here: https://soundcloud.com/user-441868857/sets/introduction-to-pauls-letters-at-the-undergraduate-level
•I have quite a number of videos on Paul here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpoHBUt59kw&list=PLWhnl_rNMO7InPNqRKKju__mykX73sDdE
