Assignment 3: Pauline Terminology

1. Read the following passages from Paul's Letters: I Corinthians 2:10-16; II Corinthians 5:16-21; Romans 1:1-6.

2. Without assuming their functional equivalence and without assuming a doctrine of the Trinity, try to figure out the meanings of and relationships between the following terms: God, Christ, Son of God, Lord, and Spirit.

3. You don't have to be "right" (as though there is one right solution!!) but you do need to provide the reasons for your decisions (the logic or textual evidence you used). You also do not need to assume that these terms are equivalent across all three passages.

4. Write up the results in a 1-2 page paper (and this time I really mean that as a limit!!).
