Paul the Progressive (with Dr. Eric Smith)

In 1 Corinthians, Paul instructs women on how they should dress when they are leading worship, not when they are in attendance.


Paul the Progressive (with Dr. Eric Smith)

In this show Pastor Adam talks with Dr. Eric Smith, author of “Paul the Progressive?” Was Paul progressive? Or was he the women hating, homophobic, anti-sex, leader of early Christianity that changed Jesus’ message?

A resident of Denver, Dr. Smith teaches at the Iliff School of Theology, where he is Assistant Professor of Early Christianity and Contemporary Christian Practices. His courses include introductions to the New Testament, the Hebrew Bible, and the first 600 years of Christianity, plus courses on biblical exegesis, ancient Christian practices, and various periods of the history of Christianity.
