Paul between Damascus and Antioch

£9.99

Product description

SCM Press, London, UK
Hengel, Martin and Schwemer, Anna Maria.

Of all the early Christian authors before the second half of the second century, we know by far the most about Paul. Yet much of his activity as an apostle, which extends from around 33 to 64, i.e. more than thirty years, remains obscure. This important new book, a sequel to Martin Hengel's The Pre-Christian Paul, is about some of that period. It covers the time between Paul's conversion in Damascus and his arrival in Antioch. With an unparalleled wealth of historical material and a reconsideration of Paul's own writings, we are not only given a new picture of Paul's own activity, but also shown in more detail than ever before the background against which it took place; the church in Damascus to which he was introduced on his conversion; the methods of the first Christian mission; the situation in Arabia and King Aretas IV, the Nabataean king who confronted Paul on his first mission; the mission territory in Tarsus and Cilicia to which he then moved; the nature of the church in Antioch.

Paperback.

Condition: Very Good. Text pages unmarked. Cover faded at spine, with slight creasing. Pages lightly tanned.
