1.Did Paul die when he was stoned in Lystra? What is the evidence for each position, yes and no? Pauls testimony in 2 Corinthians 12 is often associated with this event. Is that valid? What are the reasons why it should or should not be associated with his stoning? Use the Bible, Ger, and one additional scholarly source to research this and to present your position.
2.Fresh on the heels of the Jerusalem Council, Paul insists on circumcising Timothy. Why would he consider this necessary? Was Paul being hypocritical, since the Council had just determined Gentiles need not be circumcised for salvation? Use the Bible, Ger, and one additional scholarly source to research this and to present your position.
Your thread must answer the two questions in at least 300 words (150 words per question). This guideline promotes writing that is thorough, yet concise enough to permit your classmates to read all the threads. You must include references to the Bible, the textbook, and at least 1 additional outside source to support your positions. References must be formatted in the current Turabian style. First-person perspective (e.g., I or we) is allowed in all your posts.
The Post First feature has been activated in the Discussion Board Forums for this course. You will need to post your thread before you will be able to view and reply to other students’ threads.
