Reflections on the epistles. The epistles are most of the New Testament of the Bible. They are the collection of letters that were written by or attributed to Paul.
Paul’s words have so much wisdom to offer us if we read deeply into the cultural context into which Paul was speaking. His words are often misunderstood — and misused. This is because we fail to understand his character, the culture in which he wrote, or the genre and tone of his letters. These posts seek to better understand Paul’s culture and use appropriate analogies to modern culture. I hope this helps us to better hear the wisdom Paul has to offer, see his understanding of the movement of God’s Spirit, and apply that wisdom and understanding to our lives.
