Paul: Follower of Jesus or Founder of Christianity?
From The Publisher:
This book provides a broad, popular look at the relationship between Paul and Jesus. Considering the recurrent question of how much Paul knew and was dependent on the teachings of Jesus, Wenham studies the Gospels and Paul's letters, systematically compares the teachings of Jesus and Paul, and reveals the intriguing connections and differences between the two. His conclusions make this volume a ground-breaking work with exciting implications for the study of Jesus and the Gospels of Paul and early Christianity.
Jesus of Nazareth and Paul of Tarsus played a vital role in the establishment and early development of the Christian faith. But was Paul a faithful follower of Jesus and his teachings or an innovator who brought new and uncongenial ideas into Christianity? British scholar Wenham looks at these difficult, sometimes controversial, questions systematically compares the teachings of Jesus and Paul, and reveals the fascinating – and challenging – connections and differences between them.
