Paul is one of Christianity's most controversial figures. While Jesus attracts relatively unified interest, many take sides for and against his follower Paul. Some of Paul's detractors see him as a great compromiser of what Jesus lived and taught. Paul's supporters consider him the great transformer of a parochial Jewish message into a universal faith. This course will consider opposing views of Paul as represented by Barrie Wilson, a convert to Judaism from Christianity, as well as Marcus Borg and John Crossan, who consider Paul remarkably faithful to Jesus himself. Join a vigorous, respectful debate and come to your own conclusions!
