The Pauline Parallels has been redesigned and revised in order to provide an improved practical tool for students seeking to understand the Pauline corpus of letters. In his letters, Paul echoes the structure of the common letter, he employs rhetorical devices, and he often repeats themes and images. The Pauline Parallels provides a ready, efficient, comprehensive way to study the letters structurally, formally, and thematically by gathering relevant passages from all the letters onto the page or folio for immediate comparison. The Pauline Parallels is the analog for the Pauline letters of a gospel parallels.The Pauline Parallels is a sequential presentation of each of the ten chief letters attributed to Paul: Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians and Philemon. Each letter is divided into sense units or paragraphs of discourse; these paragraphs, as they are designated, are numbered consecutively from the salutation of Romans to the closing remarks of Philemon. Paragraph numbers are then used as the basis of the presentation of the materials in the Pauline Parallels and function effectively in a system of cross-referencing.

Page 256 - For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

Page 144 - Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
Page 54 - I appeal to you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

Page 23 - We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.
Page 301 - We know that in everything God works for good* with those who love him,' who are called according to his purpose. ^For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the first-born among many brethren. 30And those whom he predestined he also called; and those whom he called he also justified; and those whom he justified he also glorified.
Page 149 - For this slight momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, "because we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
Page 208 - Who shall separate us from the love of Christ ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword ? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long ; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
