50 hours (5 weeks).

Various; distance learning format.

September 2021 - Present. 

Instructional delivery format: 
Online/distance learning
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: define  a panoramic view of Pauline theology and its place in the New Testament; emphasize the development of these in the different epistles from the Pentecostal perspective; know the fundamental doctrines, eg. God, grace, redemption and the end of time; and justify the importance of the impact and application of Pauline thought in the contemporary church.


Instruction is offered completely online or in synchronous format through the use of study guides, required and supplemental readings, quizzes, homework, lab-required interaction with the instructor, and/or final exams. The course assesses students’ end-of-course knowledge and skills in an online format. Major topics taught in this course include a panoramic view of the work and life of the apostle Paul. Within Pauline theology, many themes and thoughts are so intertwined with each other that each reader will be able to reach their own conclusions, since Pauline thought is exquisite and very broad. 

Credit recommendation: 

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Introduction to Biblical Studies, Introduction to Religious Studies, or Introduction to Scriptural Studies (9/21).
