In case you run out of time to finish the essay you’ve shown in the introduction that you thought it you could note but hang on a minute if all the in all the theology is in Romans one to eleven are we really to suppose that what Paul’s practical advice and appeals in chapters twelve to fifteen are unrelated to his theology are his plaque practical discussions simply unmotivated by any of the theology he’s bothered to set out in chapters 1 to 11 is it absent is it is that just a shopping list so then you start just you start to refine your judgement and say well bit the theology set out in more abstract terms in the first eleven chapters must at least inform the practical concerns that he raises in the second so all of a sudden the answer is becoming closer to no not really or at least it depends what you mean.

So this is just an example of how you might go about answering that question which I’ve set out here probably with spelling mistakes that’s true there isn’t another meaning there isn’t oh yes that’s exactly right you could you could even say so in conclusion I would rephrase the title the first eleven chapters is all theology not necessarily oh you you’re actually reading all Paul’s theology is in the first 11 chapters of Romans rather than all the theology in Romans is in the first 11 chapters that’s a slightly different question again is you could also see an exam question which asked you is Paul’s theology summed up entirely in Romans people have often said yes that’s right you could say it’s set out most abstractly and universally in the first 11 chapters and then applied so there’s a lots of ways you could rephrase it favorite question what were the problems in Corinth and with the caveat answer with reference to 1 Corinthians 2 Corinthians is a fascinating letter.

But it’s often missed out from this sort of syllabus simply because it’s complicated people generally agree that it’s at least two letters of Paul to the Corinthians stitched together many people think it’s three stitched together not necessarily in the right chronological order Schmitt all’s thought it was 13 but then Mittal’s simply dissects everything andrey configures it in order to produce the Gospel according to Schmidt all thinking about 1 Corinthians what were the problems in Corinth what springs to mind if one was asked that question yeah iein Paul seems to list that very early on its virtual virtually the first I mean he mentions divisions as his principal warrior and when you read some of the literature like Kurt Tyson’s 1982 the social setting of Pauline Christianity I know many of these books are old and some out of date and it is frustrating but they are still immensely important and unfortunately it’s just a sad fact of academia that most important books are often also out of print.
