Part 1 - Themes Chapter 1 - Paul's World, Paul's Legacy1.1 IntroductionPaul occupies 3 worlds: Judaism - 2nd temple Judaism; religion, faith, culture and politics.Hellenistic - permeated most of the eastern Mediterranean world - everybody's second language and assumed framework of thought (culture, philosophy and rhetoric). Read Epictetus and compare to Paul.Rome - ideology and burgeoning empire cult. Roman context integrates closely with the other two.

Fourth world - family of the messiah [ecclesia]. Different than all 3 previous worlds.
