- The "anti-household" Paul: thecla [Introduction to new testament History and Literature]
- Martin, Dale B.
- Educação Superior::Ciências Humanas::Teologia
- Presents a class about the new testament. The Acts of Paul and Thecla has a narrative quite similar to those in ancient Greco-Roman novels: Thecla becomes enamored of Paul and they share a number of adventures. However, the Acts redirects eroticism towards a belief in a gospel of purity and asceticism. The Acts of Paul and Thecla present an ascetic, anti-marriage, anti-family message that would break the cycle of sex, birth, death, and decay that was so obvious in the ancient world
