Paul was a pioneer for Christ Jesus, yet he also followed the tradition he helped create.
When studying the body of Paul’s writing, you
find a man who knows how to handle thorny, real-life congregational
issues with pervasive arguments and theological answers. In Paul,
you’ll gain a keen understanding of his place in the early church as
well as discover ways in which he became an adherent of the church that
existed before he joined. Author Jerry L. Sumney also examines the
relationship between church and synagogue and between the teaching of
Paul and that of Jesus.
