I Thessalonians

II Thessalonians


I Corinthians

II Corinthians


The person of Paul intrigues me very much because the way he wrote. Not easy, doctrinal, in big, long sentences. Sometimes you have to read certain paragraphs three or four times before you understand what he means. Paul probably wrote as he learned this as a student of the great Pharisee Gemaliel.

Paul's great themes in his letters are 'life under the law', 'life in freedom from grace', personal sanctification and guidelines to keep the church 'pure and pure'. But there are more reasons to look deeper in his letters written in the Bible.

Paul has written thirteen letters which are included in the New Testament. They are addressed to:

separate congregations as Rome, Corinth, Ephesus, Philippi, Colosse, and Thessalonica
but also to a more congregations in a one region such as the Galatians.
and Paul has written to individuals as to Titus and Filemon.

The most likely order in which Paul wrote his letters can be divided in the time that Paul lived and worked in freedom, and the time that he was captured and wrote his letters in captivity.

Letters written in freedom are: I and II Thessalonians, Galatians, I and II Corinthians, Romans.
Letters written in captivity are: Ephesus, Colossians, Filemon, Philippians, I Timothy, Titus, II Timothy

The letter to the Hebrews may also have been written by Paul, but this is uncertain. If Paul is the writer, the number of his New Testament writings is fourteen.
