In 1 Corinthians , Paul wrote that he had sent Timothy to remind (ἀναμιμνῄσκω–another μιμ* word) them of his ways (ὁδός) in Christ which he taught everywhere in every church. Paul’s “ways” were his doctrines. The Corinthians needed to be reminded of these doctrines due to their many problems. THE MESSAGE PAUL PREACHED. The message Paul preached was the Lord Jesus Christ and Him crucified. The subject of his preaching was the cross of Christ and the crucified Christ. He did not know anything except this. If we forget the cross and do not make the cross and Christ our unique subject, how much will we and our audience miss!

  Paul was born in the city of Tarsus, capital of the province of Cilicia. During Paul’s time, this was a city which enjoyed no taxation. It was a free city, and a place of culture and learning. How did Paul's family arrive in Tarsus? There is some suspicion that Paul’s parents or ancestors were taken to Tarsus as prisoners of war.   “Paul established new churches, communities of followers of Jesus Christ—both Jews and Gentiles, men and women, free and salves—and teaches the new believers the Word of God, the teachings of Jesus, the significance of the gospel for everyday living.” [Col. ] Paul’s missionary methods (pp. ).

The Judaizers, apparently, as well as Paul, recognized the alternative between Jesus Christ and man; like Paul they separated Jesus Christ from ordinary humanity and placed Him on the side of God.

The same phenomenon appears everywhere in the Pauline Epistles—the tremendous doctrine of the person of Christ is never defended, but always assumed.

union with the Lord Jesus Christ. For Paul, union with Christ is summed up in the short phrase ‘in Christ’ and its various equivalents. It is supposed by many to be original with Paul, and the idea appears in different ways about two hundred and sixteen times in his writing.

God used Paul in a radical way to reach the Gentiles for Christ and spread the gospel over the whole Roman world in the first century. Praying and learning from his prayers can help us deepen and strengthen our prayer lives by gazing deep into the soul of the passionate apostle who said, “ I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord ” (Philippians.

Paul, still going by the name of Saul, requested permission from the Jewish leaders to seek out and arrest those who had become part of the new religion of Jesus Christ. He also apparently went as far as having some Christians put to death (Acts ); we know he witnessed, and approved of (Acts ), the stoning of Stephen, who was a.

Brief Summary: The book of Acts gives the history of the Christian church and the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ, as well as the mounting opposition to it.

As previously noted, the book of Acts gives us a historical look at Paul’s life and times. The apostle Paul spent his life proclaiming the risen Christ Jesus throughout the Roman world, often at great personal peril (2 Corinthians –27).

Granted, Paul focused more on theological issues than Jesus did, but nothing Paul said is contrary to Christ. Luke wrote both the Gospel of Luke and the book of Acts.

In Acts 9 Luke records the events surrounding Paul's conversion. We see that Jesus himself called Paul and sent him to be an apostle. Patrons alone, for example, had the right to escape bodily violation, as we see when Paul’s status as a citizen (a patron, albeit of a household of one) is the only thing that protects him from an arbitrary flogging (Acts ).

Paul nonetheless embraces bodily suffering, along with many other forms, as the necessity of a leader in Jesus’ way. Paul also references Jesus appearing in bodily form in 1 Timothy further supporting Christ’s humanity.

Paul also references Jesus’ deity. For example, Paul’s letter to the Colossians explicitly states, “For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form” (Colossians ). Although the person of Christ is crucial to orthodox theology, the work of Christ is also critically important.

as well as to trust in Christ. They insisted the only way a Gentile could enter into the blessings of the kingdom of. St. Paul also urges us to relive the life of Christ, whose body was a temple, by offering "your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual [rational] worship" (Romans.

Paul begins Galatians by saying that he was sent by Christ and the Father, and that the other church leaders agreed with him. In Galatians –, he expands on these two points.

He begins in verses 11 and 12 by saying that the Gospel he preached was not devised by human wisdom, nor had he received it from the other apostles; rather, he.

The Epistle to the Romans or Letter to the Romans, often shortened to Romans, is the sixth book in the New al scholars agree that it was composed by Paul the Apostle to explain that salvation is offered through the gospel of Jesus is the longest of the Pauline epistles.

This week study Dr. Fred Long takes learners through Paul’s grand vision of the Church as Christ’s body, a people called to be holy and blameless in love.
