Pauline Theology

Continuing the group’s previous study of sin and its remedy in Romans, the Pauline Theology research group this year will explore the topic of sin and its remedy in 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, and Galatians. The aim of the study is to seek to answer a series of questions, including: How does Paul conceptualize sin? Does he primarily regard sin as disobedience, or as an enslaving power? If both, is there a model or perspective that best accounts for these multiple conceptualities? And what does all of this tell us about the Christological and Pneumatological remedies to the problem of sin as Paul conceives of them? For further information, please contact Nijay Gupta (ngupta@georgefox.edu) or John Goodrich (john.goodrich@moody.edu).
