2019 Semester 2 Tuesday Evening Unit

**SPECIAL REDUCED AUDIT RATE ON THIS UNIT**

Pauline Theology and Romans (Greek) (NT435/635)

Australian College of Theology Unit Pre/co-requisite: NT302/502, LA004A/B

2019 Semester 2 Wednesday Evening Unit

The apostle Paul was one of the most zealous evangelists and clearest thinkers in the early church. What we know about him comes from the Acts of the Apostles and from the letters that make up a large part of our New Testament. Our world is fast becoming as pagan as it was in Paul’s time.
