In Pauline Epistles, Dr. Chamblin shows how Paul develops a mature and inspired theology grounded in the Old Testament and Paul’s knowledge of Jesus's redemptive work. Dr. Chamblin will guide you through the highs of Paul's theological genius in Ephesians and the lows of Paul's sorrow for an obstinate congregation in Corinth, and you will see that Paul’s letters are deeply personal, occasional, and filled with the wisdom of a seasoned apostle and experienced minister of God’s word. Though, as the Apostle Peter said concerning Paul's letters, "some things in them are hard to understand," Dr. Chamblin's lectures will help you penetrate through the shroud to the glories of Christ.

Phenomenal Teacher

Passionate teaching about what can become a monotonous study. Can't say enough good things about this teaching series.

Good Bible Study

I did not register for the course nor read the assigned material. **** Dr. Chamblin takes a Bible study approach as opposed to a framework approach. That is, he teaches the text on a verse-by-verse level as rather than giving the students a framework of tools to analyze the text on his or her own. This provides the advantage of giving the student a solid understanding of one scholarly perspective of the text. The downside is that the student is not equipped to analyze competing analyses of the text. Dr. Chamblin spends little time on addressing the arc of Paul’s letters, how the issues facing the church evolved over time, how he developed various themes over time, how to reconcile themes presented in different letters, etc. **** Dr. Chamblin does not address II Thessalonians, I & II Timothy, Titus, or Philemon at all. I was particularly disappointed that he did not discuss the authorship of the disputed Pauline books at all. **** The production quality is good. However, there are some editing flaws. At one point, about 3-5 minutes of a lecture are repeated. At another point, an announcer intones that it is time to turn the cassette tape over. **** Overall, this is a worthwhile series of lectures to listen to for the serious student of the Christian Bible.
