Abstract:

"Jurgen Becker, one of the most respected German New Testament scholars, delves into the person, world, work, letters, and thought of Paul in order to provide a comprehensive and thorough study that answers both historical and theological questions. He gives a detailed, careful, and imaginative presentation of the chronology of Paul's life and he works diligently through evidence available concerning the Hellenistic world in which Paul, Judaism, and early Christianity existed. For each letter, readers learn of the city to which Paul wrote, the situation Paul faced, the literary integrity of the epistle, and of its structure and line of argument."--Jacket.
