Description: The collection of Pauls letters to the churches of his day form one of the largest and most theologically rich parts of the New Testament. Wilson compares passages from each of Pauls letters including the Pastoral Epistles with a broad spectrum of ancient literature. Not only are parallels drawn among the Pauline letters, but with New Testament and Old Testament writings, early Jewish literature including the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the philosophical and religious works of Greece and Rome.¬ With this wide scope of comparisons, Pauline Parallels: A Comprehensive Guide is the most complete literary and structural assessment of Pauls writings to date, and is sure to be an invaluable resource for students of the New Testament for years to come.
