This project was prompted by a desire to ascertain the extent to which the ethical teachings of Jesus are modified by the teachings of the Apostle Paul. Previous study of the New Testament had given rise to a consideration of the possibility that the unconditional teachings of Jesus were "softened" by the pragmatic advice of Paul. It was thought that one might find the role of a Christian, as he meets and resolves ethical questions, more clearly defined in the words of the Apostle.
