Pauline studies

Pauline studies is a sub-discipline within the larger framework of New Testament studies, which itself is in an even greater realm of the discipline of Biblical Studies (encompassing both the OT and NT). It involves many such as: What letters did Paul really write? What was Paul's theology? Was there a center to his theology? What is the background to his letters and thought? What was his knowledge of Jesus?
