A few weeks ago Mark Lanier invited me to speak to his Sunday School class at Champions Forest Baptist Church. Mark teaches a class weekly of about 700 people, and I have been privileged to speak there are few times.
On this occasion Mark was doing a series on the apostle Paul, and he asked me to contribute a talk on “Paul: Surprises Along the Way.” Essentially, Mark asked me to talk about the kinds of things I’ve learned about Paul that I would have never expected. I have written a couple of books on Paul and it was a delight to spend some time thinking through a few of the surprises. Each of Mark’s Sunday School classes are recorded and made available on YouTube. I’ve included a link here, in case you are interested. The talk is about 45 minutes.
