ELMM Retreat: The Letters of Paul

March 9 - March 10

The Letters of Paul
Dr. Walter (“Wally”) Taylor, Trinity Lutheran Seminary, Columbus OH

Paul became a Christian in the 30’s of the first century. Most of his writing was done in the decade of the 50’s, before the gospels were written. He gives us, therefore, a glimpse of the first generation of Christians. Why not? The earliest congregations were composed of Jews who believed in Jesus as the Jewish Messiah. Many of them did not recognize that God wanted the Gentiles (non-Jews) to be included in their congregations. The church of Paul’s time, therefore, faced a crucial decision: Shall we bring this message about Jesus to the Gentiles, at the risk of losing some of our identity? Some said, “No.” Paul said, “We must.”
