Paul: A Critical Life

Jerome Murphy-oʼconnor

After writing his Second Letter to the Thessalonians—with the hope of correcting their misinterpretations of his teaching—Paul himself does not tell what has happened in Thessalonica. However, Paul himself says that fourteen years after this first visit to Jerusalem, he returned as a Christian after establishing Christianity in Greece. This chapter argues that Paul made it perfectly clear that he was not an emissary of Jerusalem or a subordinate to Peter. Luke was aware that Barnabas was not Paul's companion on the ‘second journey’. Paul and Barnabas came to the Jerusalem conference as delegates of the church of Antioch. Paul however, insisted that he went up to Jerusalem on account of a revelation. The chapter also discusses Paul's and James' views on the circumcision of the Gentiles.
