Many Christians today imagine the apostle Paul sitting down at a desk one afternoon in a quiet room all by himself and writing a letter to one of the first-century churches he started on one of his missionary journeys. A letter we now have included in our New Testament. And when he finished writing that letter, he signed it, sealed it, and put it in the mail. That is the way we write letters, or the way our grandparents wrote them. But is that how Paul wrote his letters in the first century? Join the Discover the Word group as our friend Randy Richards joins us to show us how basically every aspect of that scenario about writing letters is wrong. In these conversations called “Paul, the Letter Writer,” we’ll discover what letter writing was like in the first century, and how that influences how we read Paul’s letter today.
