The author had heard that it was feasible, but he did not know any specifics. Frankly, that preacher was either lazy and did not care, or he like many was too unfamiliar with the Bible to know any better. In this article, we will demonstrate how we can determine the chronological order of the Pauline Acts epistles. Why do this? Chronologists often disagree Dating pauls writings touching numerical years.

In other words, it is much easier to establish where a Pauline Acts epistle was written in relation to Acts as in, chapter 20 than to establish its absolute year for example, A. Human calendars are simply too ambiguous concerning such ancient history, but the Word of God is a sure basis for timelines. Dates based on Scripture are much more reliable than human reckoning of time.

As we will see, Dating pauls writings Pauline Books, Romans through Philemon, are not ordered in the Bible chronologically. That is, the Apostle wrote them in an order different from the table of contents at the beginning of our Bible. Romans was not his first epistle, and Philemon was not his last. The 13 Pauline epistles are deliberately arranged as such because the Holy Spirit edifies the saint from Romans basics all the way to Philemon Dating pauls writings.

These six are the focus of our present study. Friend, be aware that there will be much verse comparison, but it will be highly profitable. You probably will not grasp this material the first time around—or even the second, third, or fourth—but you keep at it until you do understand! Galatians is the Book whose corresponding chapter in Acts is most difficult to pinpoint. Paul visited the region of Galatia— not a city, please note, but a territory—in Acts chapters 13 and Antioch in PisidiaIconiumand Derbe and Lystra are all in the vicinity of Galatia modern central and southern Turkey.

Paul traveled through Galatia a second time in Actsand a third time in Acts Galatians seems to indicate that Paul has already visited Galatia at least twice. In fact, he has just left Galatia Galatians All this data places Galatians as being written between the visit and the visit. Exactly where Paul was when he wrote Galatians is unknown, but that makes no difference. There is often difference of opinion. After all, Galatians is the most convincing Book to defend his Gentile apostleship as separate and distinct from Peter and the 11, and it delineates how the grace message is not to be confused or combined with legalism Law-keeping, Judaism.

Surely, God the Holy Spirit would have wanted this information codified as soon as possible. Galatians, therefore, was likely the first inspired epistle of Paul. Paul visited Thessalonica in Acts According to 1 ThessaloniansPaul has just departed the city Acts explains why. In 1 Thessalonianshe refers to his unlawful beating and illegal imprisonment at Philippi Acts He has already passed through Athens 1 Thessalonianswhich historically occurred in Acts — Timothy and Silas are both with Paul as per 1 Thessalonians and 2 Thessalonians Dating pauls writings, corresponding to Acts cf.

Acts Timothy departed from Paul in Actsmaking it impossible for 1 and 2 Thessalonians to Dating pauls writings written anytime after. First Thessalonians was penned in Acts chapter 18, while Paul was in Corinth. Second Thessalonians was written shortly after, but again, no later than Acts when Timothy left Paul.

Both Thessalonian epistles were written before the two Corinthian epistles. The two Corinthian epistles, like Romans beloware the easiest to date because they track Paul as he he to Jerusalem with the collection for the poor Jewish kingdom saints. He first came to Corinth in Acts He writes that he has already baptized the Corinthians 1 Corinthians cf. The riot at Ephesus Acts — is suggested in 1 Corinthians First Corinthians and indicate that Timothy is approaching Corinth.

Paul intends to pass through Macedonia according to 1 Corinthianswhich he Dating pauls writings in Acts while making his way to Jerusalem Acts ; 1 Corinthians Paul departed Ephesus in Actsmeaning that Dating pauls writings Corinthians was penned in the final moments of chapter 19 perhaps As for 2 Corinthians, Timothy was with Paul This would be after Acts when Timothy left Paul and returned. Paul visited Macedonia followed by Greece Acts Macedonia is roughly where Paul wrote 2 Corinthians, The Macedonians have just given donations to Paul 2 Corinthiansmeaning 2 Corinthians was written before the Book of Romans cf.

Romans Second Corinthians speaks of the riot in Ephesus Acts — He arrives in Jerusalem in Actsafter which 2 Corinthians could not be written. Second Corinthians correlates with Acts In light of all this, 2 Corinthians, therefore, was written during the timeframe of Acts He arrives in Jerusalem in Acts According to Romanshe has just collected donations from Achaia Corinth and Macedonia Thessalonica.

Romans is also indicative that Paul is in Corinth, for Erastus is chamberlain of Corinth 2 Timothy Paul visited Corinth three times 2 Corinthiansand Romans was written on his third trip. Phebe was the courier of the Book of Romans Romans was written after 2 Corinthians cf. Romansfor Paul had already collected from Achaia Corinth. Romans was penned in Actsafter he wrote 2 Corinthians. While Paul was under house arrest in Rome during the two years following the Acts period Actshe wrote Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon. Luke penned the Book of Acts here.
