Paul's Prison Epistles

Paul's Prison Epistles cover art
Instructor: Dr. Reggie Kidd
Lessons: 5
Forums: 5
Discipline: New Testament
Course Group: Pauline Epistles

As Christians we face many challenges to our faith. False teachings and worldviews assault our loyalty to Christ. Suffering tempts us to think that God is not in control, or that he does have our best interests at heart. And our relationships with other believers are often strained to the point that we doubt the value of the church. But Paul had responses to these types of difficulties — responses that he outlined in his letters from prison.

Course Goals:

  • Explain the details and circumstances of Paul's imprisonment.
  • Describe the ministry Paul conducted from prison.
  • Summarize the structure, content, original meaning and modern application of Colossians, Ephesians, Philemon and Philippians.
