Who Was Paul?
Date Aired: 12/01/2022
According to the Bible, Paul was once Saul, a Christian-persecuting zealot who “converted” to Christianity. But did Paul, the earliest author in the New Testament, see himself as anything other than Jewish? Special guest Matthew Novenson joins Helen and Dave to discuss which of Paul’s letters are legit, and what life would have been like for a diaspora Jew like Paul in the first century.
