The Acts of Paul and Thecla: Ecclesial, Social and Political Context
Access options available:. Journal of Early Christian Studies 8. Davis Cairo, Egypt. In early Christian studies, the Acts of Paul has gained attention as an expression of Pauline tradition in the second century. Indeed, in a study now over a decade-and-a-half old, Dennis R. MacDonald argued that the Acts of Paul and the Pastoral Epistles each borrowed from a common stock of oral legends about the apostle Paul, but applied them to very different purposes.
By contrast, the Pastorals oppose such a vision of Paul's ministry, and instead seek to endorse conservative social values and the development of an organized ecclesiastical leadership. MacDonald himself was concerned to show how the author of the Acts of Paul may have relied on oral materials in his composition; however, he does not say [End Page ] much at all about how the author utilized the writings of Paul in putting together the Acts.
Does the author utilize Paul's writings? If so, what can be said about the author's role as an "exegete" of Paul? The answers to such questions are complicated by the fact that there are no extended quotations of Paul's letters in the Acts of Paul. This should not be so surprising: the Acts of Paul was not meant to be a commentary on the letters, but a source of Pauline legend and teaching in its own right.
Yet, even in the absence of explicit, extended quotation, it is possible to discern the influence of Paul's writing on the work. To do so, the reader must tune his or her ear to subtle allusions and echoes--terms, phrases, and cadences drawn from the letters.
The Acts of Paul is, in fact, full of allusions to Paul's writings. Its author knew and referred to all seven of Paul's genuine letters Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Philippians, 1 Thessalonians, Philemon , as well as most of his disputed or spurious works Ephesians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy.
The allusions take various forms. Sometimes it may be just the mention of a name: for example, a reference to Stephanas, the man whose household Paul claims to have baptized in 1 Corinthians 1. Below, I present five examples of how the language of Paul in 1 Corinthians is echoed in the Acts of Paul :.

The Apocryphal Acts of Paul, Peter, John, Andrew and Thomas
Thecla was widely remembered as a disciple of the apostle Paul in Asia Minor modern Turkey. The original source for the Thecla legend was the second-century Acts of Paul and Thecla , which reports her story as follows: When Paul comes to Thecla's hometown of Iconium preaching a gospel that emphasized the virtue of celibacy, Thecla abandons her plans for marriage and follows the apostle. Thecla is saved only when a miraculous thunderstorm quenches the flames. Later, after being reunited with Paul, she is sexually assaulted on the road to Antioch by a prominent citizen of that city. She manages to rebuff her attacker, but he arranges to have her thrown to the beasts in the local arena.

The Influence of Paul's View of Women on the Acts of Paul and Thecla
Acts of Paul , one of the earliest of a series of pseudepigraphal noncanonical New Testament writings known collectively as the Apocryphal Acts. It includes, among others, an episode reminiscent of the Greek fable of Androcles and the lion, in which Paul escapes from the wild beasts in the arena at Ephesus by recognizing a lion he had baptized earlier. The Acts of Paul was first mentioned by Tertullian ad — , who found the book heretical because it encouraged women to preach and baptize. Despite the seemingly anti-Pauline endorsement of female ministry, the author did conform to doctrinal orthodoxy regarding continence and the Resurrection by establishing a close relationship between sexual purity and salvation.

As Paul was going up to Iconium after the flight from Antioch , his fellow-travellers were Demas and Ermogenes, full of hypocrisy; and they were importunate with Paul , as if they loved him. But Paul , looking only to the goodness of Christ , did them no harm, but loved them exceedingly, so that he made the oracles of the Lord sweet to them in the teaching both of the birth and the resurrection of the Beloved; and he gave them an account, word for word, of the great things of Christ , how He had been revealed to him.
Goodspeed called it a " religious romance "  —of Paul the apostle 's influence on a young virgin named Thecla. It is one of the writings of the New Testament apocrypha. It is attested no earlier than Tertullian , De baptismo c , who says that a presbyter from Asia wrote the History of Paul and Thecla , and was deposed after confessing that he wrote it.
Она уже собиралась вылезать, как вдруг ожил радиотелефон. Сьюзан быстро встала и, расплескивая воду, потянулась к трубке, лежавшей на краю раковины. - Дэвид.

Свет от монитора Стратмора отбрасывал на них жутковатую тень. Сьюзан старалась держаться поближе к шефу на небольшой платформе с металлическими поручнями. По мере того как они удалялись от двери, свет становился все более тусклым, и вскоре они оказались в полной темноте. Единственным освещением в шифровалке был разве что свет звезд над их головами, едва уловимое свечение проникало также сквозь разбитую стеклянную стену Третьего узла.
