The unit introduces the student to the letters of Paul as individual books and as a collection. It helps the student gain an orientation to the individual letters and to repeated themes throughout the collection. The unit also orientates the student to the apostle’s life and how the letters fit into the different missionary journeys presented in the book of Acts. Students will develop their competence as readers of Paul’s letters, and be able to show how these letters deepen our understanding of God and the gospel as how they call us to live the Christian life.
