Summary:

Introduction to New Testament (RLST 152)

The accounts of Paul's travels in The Acts of the Apostles and Galatians seem to contradict each other at many points. Their descriptions of a meeting in Jerusalem--a major council in Acts versus a small, informal gathering in Galatians--also differ quite a bit. How do we understand these differences? A historical critical reading of these accounts does not force these texts into a harmonious unity or accept them at face value. Instead, a historical critical reading carefully sifts through the details of the texts and asks which of these is more likely to be historically accurate.

00:00 - Chapter 1. Paul's Travels in the Acts of the Apostles
17:49 - Chapter 2. Paul's Travels in Galatians
28:25 - Chapter 3. Which Account Is More Historically Accurate?
