Paul, Love, Christian

Description
Paper that articulates the progress of your findings, tracing your theme (love) chronologically through Paul’s seven uncontested letters: Romans, First Corinthians, Second Corinthians, Galatians, Philippians, First Thessalonians, Philemon.
Love: How does Paul define love? Is his definition of love different than how you have understood it? What concrete images does Paul use to describe love? Is it okay to love certain people more than others? Why or why not? What letters emphasize love? Why? What letters do not emphasize love? Why? What problems, issues, tensions, or ambiguities about love do you find in Paul?s letters? Can they be resolved? Should they be resolved? What modern metaphors would you use to describe love (both Paul?s idea and/or your own)? How does he teach Christians to learn about love?
Chief resources include Paul?s letters, Our mother St Paul (Gaventa), Introducing the New Testament (Powell), Paul and his Theology (Fitzmyer), the Anchor Bible Dictionary, and the Dictionary of Paul and His Letters. You need to use quotes from these letters and use footnote as well.

Midterm prep (please use office hours):

(2) Start tracing your theme as your read through each Pauline letter. Print out each letter and highlight key passages where your theme shows up. Now.

(3) Use questions in the Canvas file to help you think about your theme. You may also develop your own questions!

(4) Evolve and develop a 2-3 sentence thesis (see ?Insight? criterion).
(5) Create an outline of your argument (see ?Argument? criterion), including an outline of the texts you will cite (MLA format).
(6) When you write, be sure to integrate the texts into your own voice (see ?Texts? criterion.
(7) After you write, be sure to edit your paper carefully, not only for errors but also for effective diction, sentence structure, and punctuation (see ?Grammar? criterion). Ask: how can I say this more effectively?
