B671 Paul in Prison: Philippians, Philemon, Ephesians, and Colossians

This course provides an opportunity for exegetical engagement (Greek B501/B021 required) with two letters by Paul and two in the Pauline tradition, each of which deals in some way with bondage, imprisonment, slavery, and liberation, redemption, and reconciliation, in light of the rise of slavery and imprisonment in contemporary society. It may be possible for students to arrange visits to the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison at Jackson, GA, for SM credit in conjunction with this class.
