Indd 46 10/3/2009 4:19:33 PM Sorting through the Data: The Range of Scholarly Views For many contemporary scholars, Paul’s 13 letters can be divided into two groups: the “standard” or “authentic” seven (1 Thessalonians, Galatians, 1, 2 Corinthians, Romans, Philippians, and Philemon) and the “disputed epistles” (2 Thessalonians, Colossians, Ephesians, 1 and 2 Timothy, and Titus).

This is one of the few potentially datable moments in Paul’s career. There does seem to be evidence of a famine in Judea sometime around 45 to 48 CE. The church at Antioch (possibly, though Acts is ambiguous here) decides to send funds to Jerusalem and Judea What Do We Know About “Paul”? indd 29 10/3/2009 4:19:32 PM for famine relief. Notably, in Acts, Paul does not collect or deliver the funds. His trip to Jerusalem for this episode is neither his first nor his final visit. He has also, according to Acts, not yet begun planting churches at all, but is part of the Antioch community, and Acts is not clear that the contribution is a collection of monies from anywhere other than Antioch.

While Paul’s letters are often written for public consumption, they still reflect a whole host of “insider” moments and information. We have to realize that each and every letter arrived in a congregation filled with personalities we have never met, possessing a unique history we no longer remember, struggling with problems and issues we no longer care about, torn by painful struggles we could never imagine, and surrounded by a pop culture (the GrecoRoman world) we can only barely retrace. How many inside jokes are lost on us?
