November 7th - November 11thPaul in the Shadow of Empire course

With a focus primarily on Paul’s letter to the Romans, this course will explore how Paul called followers of Jesus to a life of faithfulness at the heart of the Roman empire. Reading Romans from below, as a letter written to communities struggling with what it means to be faithful in a context of slavery, poverty and violence, provides a context for reflecting on how Paul’s words address the challenges of colonialism, violence and the climate crisis today.
