Paul and the Miraculous in the Classroom
In Paul and the Miraculous, New Testament scholar Graham Twelftree shows that there is often-overlooked material in Paul’s letters and aspects of the New Testament data that call for a more historically sensitive approach to Paul.
He argues that Paul is only adequately understood if the miraculous is permitted the place it had in his national life and history, his sectarian allegiance as a Pharisee, his synagogue experience, his traditions inherited from followers of Jesus, his conversion, his experiences in answer to prayer, his theological enterprise, and his experience as a missionary and pastor.
