From index@BIBLEBOOKSUMMARY.txt@ kjv@Romans:1 ROMANS - This letter, the first in canonical order, but not the first of Paul’s Epistles, is the longest and the most influential of all theApostle’s writings. Writing to Christians at Rome whom he hoped soon to visit, Paul presents to them his mature convictions concerning the Christian faith: the universality of sin; the impotence of the law as a means of salvation; the nature of God’s saving act in Christ, and its appropriation by faith. The letter closes with spiritual advice and some personal remarks.
From index@BIBLEBOOKSUMMARY.txt@ kjv@2Corinthians:1 2CORINTHIANS - Often called "the hard letter", this is an intensely personal letter. It recounts the difficulties and hardships Paul has endured in the service of Christ ( 2Corinthians:10-13 ). TheApostle regards the Corinthians as his children in Christ.
From index@BIBLEBOOKSUMMARY.txt@ kjv@1Thessalonians:1 1THESSALONIANS - These letters constitute what is probably the earliest writing of theApostle Paul. There were written in A.D. 51-52, soon after the founding of the Thessalonian church, and give Paul’s answer, to some basic problems disturbing the Christians of Thessalonica. The major contributions are eschatological, investigating especially the events preceding and accompanying the return of Christ. The concern of Paul for his followers is apparent throughout.

From index@BIBLEBOOKSUMMARY.txt@ kjv@Titus:1 TITUS - This is a personal letter written by theApostle Paul to a young minister whom he had left on Crete. Like the Timothy correspondence, the letter to Titus is practical and discusses the everyday problems confronted by a young minister. This letter is probably to be dated between the first and the second letters to Timothy.
From index@BIBLEBOOKSUMMARY.txt@ kjv@Philemon:1 PHILEMON - This shortest of all Paul’s letters was addressed to Philemon (although two other persons are included in the salutation). Paul entreats Philemon, the master of Onesimus, a runaway slave, to receive him back as a brother in Christ ( Philemon:1:16-17 ). This very personal letter reveals not only the concern of theApostle for a converted slave but also a practical demonstration of brotherhood in Christ, "where there is neither bond (slave) nor free". ( Galatians:3:28 )
From index@BIBLEBOOKSUMMARY.txt@ kjv@Hebrews:1 HEBREWS - Although tradition ascribed Hebrews to Paul, it is now generally believed to have been written by someone other than theApostle, but certainly someone who was acquainted with Paul’s teaching. The Epistle portrays Jesus, who performed the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world, as the great High Priest of the line of Melchizedek ( Genesis:14 ). The Bible’s only definition of faith occurs in this Epistle (Chap. Hebrews:11 ) and is followed by the "great line of splendor" of the men of faith.
From index@BIBLEBOOKSUMMARY.txt@ kjv@1Peter:1 1PETER - The author describes himself as "Peter anapostle of Jesus Christ", and there is no overriding reason to doubt the truth of his claim, although the beautiful Greek style employed has led some scholars to believe that the actual writing may have been done by an associate (probably a secretary). The contents breathe the spirit of Peter. His speeches recorded in Acts indicate a similar attitude toward persecution and suffering. The letter here reflects a time of suffering and trial. No doubt the widespread persecution of the Christians by the Roman authorities was the occasion of the "fiery trial" ( 1Peter:4:12 ). The writer admonishes his readers to a life of purity, of godly living, and exhorts them to steadfastness and faithfulness.
From index@GOOGLEQUOTESISSUES.txt@ BibleDivorce There is no other rational/logical/consistent way to understand this exchange regarding a right to divorce that both Matthew and Mark recounts (and theApostle Paul will later acknowledge and expand upon within his writings).
From index@GOOGLEQUOTESISSUES.txt@ BibleHarm Paul never said, "Touch not God's anointed" or "do my prophets no harm"; you will never find anapostle teach this, nor is this found ONCE in the whole New Testament.
