Two Faces of Paul

Abstract

The Legend and the Apostle by Dennis Ronald McDonald is about the Apostle Paul and the controversy which surrounds stories of his teachings. Stories about Paul come down to us from the Pastoral Epistles, 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, and from oral tradition such as those stories written down in The Acts of Paul, which includes the story of Paul and the woman Theda. MacDonald argues that it is timely to include in our image of Paul not just the Pastoral Epistles but also the stories salvaged from oral tradition. In this essay I will discuss the "truths" of both sources and review the similarities between the two images of Paul.
