Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to vividly depict the works of scripture. He speaks in a pleasant, friendly voice but with authority, frequently incorporating contemporary references. The programs are a lively combination of a sermon and college lecture.

In this episode, Dr. Creasy discusses The "Prison" Epistles (Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Philemon).

Publisher's Summary

When Paul is arrested in Jerusalem in late A.D. 57, it plunges Paul into a legal morass that sees him held under protective custody in Caesarea for nearly two years, transported to Rome for his legal appeal, and two more years waiting in Rome for his court hearing. Altogether, Paul is sidelined for nearly five years, A.D. 58 – 62. It is important to understand that Paul is not a prisoner at this time: He is a Roman citizen, first arrested for inciting a riot, but quickly put under protective custody and sent to Rome for a legal appeal that he initiates. Indeed, we read in Acts 28: 30-31—“For two whole years Paul stayed there [in Rome] in his own rented house and welcomed all who came to see him. Boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ."

While in Rome, A.D. 60 – 62, Paul writes three epistles (Ephesians, Philippians and Colossians) and a personal letter (to Philemon). Often mistakenly called Paul’s “Prison Epistles,” Paul’s epistles are enormously rich, and his personal letter to Philemon is a masterpiece of persuasion. We engage these works in this lesson.
