Overview

Paul: From Prison with Love, is a basic commentary of the writings generated from Paul's first imprisonment in Rome. He had already written the book of Galatians in 49AD, followed by First and Second Thessalonians in 5lAD. Trailing these volumes were First and Second Corinthians (56AD) and Romans (56,57AD).

Knowing these books were in circulation prior to the four prison letters is important chronological information. It means the books of James (44-45AD) and Matthew (40 AD) were available to the early church, and their influence, no doubt, was impactful. However, Paul's revelation was certainly dynamic during those early days, as well.

This commentary seeks to draw on these facts and present a cascading treatise seeking to grasp understanding about their interaction. When Ephesians was born in 60 AD, did Colossians (61AD) expand upon Ephesians or is it a separate entity?

Each book of this foursome is in the chronological order of their issuance. As each unfolds their separate message, the commentator will seek to point the way to less obvious subjects that apply to the reader—regardless in what century they are read.

Unfolding revelation is beautiful to behold, and the excitement grows as one reaches into the promises of God found in each epistle. Each book is quartered into four parts in order for small groups to study as four lessons per month (except Philemon).

The Bible texts are also included along with commentary, allowing the reader to reference the material without having to turn to the Bible and then back to the commentary. This facilitates the use of other translations for clarity.
