Term: Academic Year 2010-2011 Spring


There is not currently a faculty member for this course


This course will study two of St. Paul's epistles (Romans and Galatians). These letters distinguish themselves among Paul's epistles since they both treat the boundaries of Christian identity, including issues concerning continuity with the covenants of Israel and the law given at Sinai. The course will focus closely on the interpretation of the texts from both historical and patristic perspectives. One major topic of the course will be the role of the Torah within early Gentile Christianity, including the rationale for its transformation, and its ethical implications for praxis within the Orthodox Church today. The student will be encouraged to utilize the Greek text.
