2/26/08 Pauline Romans 1-2 Corinthians Galatians Philippians 1 Thessalonians Philemon Deutero-Pauline 2 Thessalonians Colossians Ephesians 1-2 Timothy, Titus Hebrews Acts: focuses on apostle Paul Letters of Paul: two kinds we have in new testament that are attributed to Paul. 1. Pauline – scholars agree that these were from Paul himself. There are seven letters. We are going to use these letters when talking about the apostles 2. Deutero-Pauline – deutero (secondary or second) these are second hand. Not written by paul himself but rather my someone influenced by paul.
