Stanley Porter: Paul met Jesus before he was crucified


Professor Stanley Porter (McMaster Divinity College) revisits the theory that Paul had met and seen Jesus while the latter was still alive. He presents the theory in four lectures, delivered in the 2014 H. Orton Wiley Lecture Series (Point Loma Nazarene University): “DID PAUL MEET JESUS BEFORE THE DAMASCUS ROAD? The Evidence and the Implications”.
