Scripture does not tell us whether or not Paul traveled to Spain, but in the Book of Acts and in Paul’s letters, we can tell that Paul went on many more than four journeys.
While some have suggested that Paul writes to the Philippians from Caesarea or Ephesus, I am persuaded the evidence points to the traditional view of Rome.
In his letter to Philemon, Paul does at least 11 things that work together to undermine slavery, whether that bondage is economic, racial, or sexual.
For Paul godliness is no static, stained-glass word. It is active—kinetic obedience that springs from a reverent awe of God.
Is it an alarm or a calling that gets you out of bed in the morning? The apostle Paul was clear about what he lived for...
He’s got one of the shortest books of the Bible named after him, but even Paul’s letter has more to do with Onesimus than him. I’m talking about Philemon, someone heaven knows, and we should know as well.
Dear Roger, When I read some of the things Paul wrote about women I understand why many consider Paul to be a male-chauvinistic-sexist pig. Did Paul hate women?
My brain was not wired according to factory specs. So I was not really surprised that a message on a church sign near our home triggered a very different approach to the weekly iPod Devotional. I am sure the sign is well intentioned.
The power of the gospel is shown in the supernatural affection that it produces not only for Jesus Christ himself, but also for those who belong to Jesus Christ.
It says here that you were nearly stoned to death, left for dead, flogged, unjustly thrown in prison, shipwrecked, bitten by venomous snakes, reviled, and generally persecuted wherever you went. Paul, how would you classify these many trials you experienced?

B.W. Johnson's introduction to the epistle
There's been a lot of recent discussion about how we got the New Testament. What's if it's not all Dan Brown-style fiction?
It's become popular for church leaders to refuse to confront sin in an effort to make the "unchurched" sinner comfortable. But when we take the whole gospel to people, it's amazing to watch God's Word transcend the culture—and every false religion—to change lives.
By any estimation 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 frames the Bible’s greatest text on comfort. What can we learn from Paul's words?
Avoiding eye contact, not offering greetings, and other anti-social behavior is common, but hardly Christian. How do we overcome natural indifference - even hostility - toward others?
Paul's teaching on union with Christ has often been labeled as Christian "mysticism." This is an appropriate term if understood in a qualified sense.
The phrase sounds extremely sexist and abrasive, even non-sensical to the modern ear. But there is truth and freedom here if we are willing to go looking for it.
The subject matter of his ministry was not any of the liberal arts and sciences, or the philosophy and dry morality of the Gentiles, but salvation by a crucified Christ.
All one has to do is walk into most Christian bookstores or tune into so-called Christian radio/TV to realize that false teaching is alive and well. So how should a gospel-centered church respond?
