Description
Trobisch’s thesis is that Paul himself initiated the collection of his epistles by creating a literary unit consisting of Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians and Galatians. The current form of the text is not the way the letters were originally sent but reflects their state after Paul edited them for publication. After Paul’s death, his disciples expanded this collection and Hebrews was added as the 14th epistle. This has profound implications for how we understand the New Testament texts and canon, and the development of early Christianity.
