Most of Paul's letters were written in the context of conflict with trouble-making opponents, but scholars disagree as to who those opponents were. Years ago F. C. Baur suggested that two competing missions one headed by Paul, the other by James, Peter, and John sent out a series of emissaries to win converts to the Christian faith. In Paul and the Competing Mission in Corinth Michael Goulder has examined Paul's conflict with the counter-missionaries, especially as reflected in the Corinthian Letters, and has put a new spin on Baur's theory. In this book, which is the culmination of decades of work, Goulder has painted a simple and convincing picture of the relationship between the mission of Paul and that of the counter-missionaries, whom he identifies as those evangelists sent by the "pillars" in Jerusalem. Goulder presents carefully assembled evidence in order to advance our picture of the early church and Paul's place in it. His two-missions hypothesis amounts to a comprehensive theory of the origins of Christianity and the New Testament.ContentsPreface Abbreviations 1 Gods Ascending2 Cephas in 1 Corinthians 3 Cephas in 2 Corinthians 4 Wisdom and Torah in 1 Corinthians 1 5 Wisdom and Torah in 1 Corinthians 2-16 6 The Old Covenant 7 Knowledge and Vision 8 Libertines? 9 Women and Ascesis 10 Sex and God 11 Idol Sacrifices 12 Idol Sacrifices: II 13 "No Resurrection of the Dead" 14 Another Jesus 15 Another Jesus: II 16 A Scenario of the Corinthian Church, 50-56 C.E.
