When you think of the Apostle Paul, what sort of contemporary job or career or social station do you imagine him occupying?
Do you see him as an executive person, an administrator? Does he wear business casual, shop at a department store, play golf, drive a sporty 4-door car, and live in a leafy suburb?
Is he a hipster? Does he listen to indie bands, own a record player, get his clothes at the thrift shop, hang out at his local coffee shop, and live in a house he bought with a bunch of friends in a rundown neighborhood?
Our image of Paul shapes how we read him and how we express his central concerns.
So, what do you think are dominant images of the apostle? How do you imagine him?
