In The Apocalyptic Literature, Stephen L. Cook writes
“Misconceptions about Paul’s theology often hamper today’s readers from properly appreciating and interpreting his apocalypticism. One long strain of interpretation–stretching from Augustine through Luther to Bultmann–has overemphasized the theme of individual salvation in Paul’s thinking. This effectively underplays Paul’s emphasis on cosmic redemption.” (170)
I’d say so!

I was curious: how do you pronounce Pauline, as in Pauline studies?
I pronounce it paw-line (with a long “i”). Most people I hear using the term pronounce it paw-leen.
What about Petrine? Peh-treen or Pee-trine?
