Jesus, Paul, and those they talked to

posted in: Christian 0

It occurred to me tonight that in the traditional evangelical focus on Paul a specific confrontation is lost: Paul is not recorded as specifically seeking out the outcasts of society, the tax collectors, prostitutes, and so forth. I’ve no doubt that he did in fact talk to them, but since that is not explicitly stated as it was with Jesus it is easier to miss that point and focus on the theological or pastoral aspects. We generally prefer it that way; we can deal more with people like us.
