The "Anti-household" Paul - Introduction to New Testament - Professor Dale B. Martin - Lecture 20 of 26 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, History

Description: The Acts of Paul and Thecla has a narrative quite similar to those in ancient Greco-Roman novels: Thecla becomes enamored of Paul and they share a number of adventures. However, Acts redirects eroticism towards a belief in a gospel of purity and asceticism. The Acts of Paul and Thecla present an ascetic, anti-marriage, anti-family message that would break the cycle of sex, birth, death, and decay that was so obvious in the ancient world
