Description: What happened in the last few years of Paul's life? Did he ever get to Spain? How and why did he die? Were his plans ful;lled or frustrated? How should we interpret our scant sources? And what light can be shed on these matters by the social, historical, and legal context of Paul's life? In this fresh investigation of the central historical questions, a group of leading international scholars bring together their collective expertise on the apostle Paul and on the Roman, Jewish and early Christian worlds in which he lived and died. Through new scrutiny of all the key sources, a number of fresh questions and hypotheses are developed, with wide signi;cance for all who wish to know about the climactic and traumatic ;nal years of Paul.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches
