What did it mean for the Apostle Paul’s existence in Christ to be patterned on the Cross? Why is the Christ-hymn from Philippians 2 Paul’s master story and how does it speak to us, not only as individuals, but to communities of faith? If Good Friday supplies the pattern of Christian lives, how does Easter supply the power? And, what does it mean for the Church to not simply believe the Gospel, but also become the Gospel?
In this episode I am talking to Professor Michael Gorman. Michael is the Raymond E. Brown Professor in Biblical Studies and Theology at St Mary’s University and Seminary, Baltimore. Michael has written extensively on the theology and spirituality of St Paul.
