Pablo de Tarso, originalmente Saulo de Tarso o Saulo Pablo, también llamado san Pablo, nacido entre los años 5 y 10 d. C., en Tarso de Cilicia y muerto martirizado bajo el gobierno de Nerón entre los años 58 y 67 en Roma, es conocido como el Apóstol de los gentiles, el Apóstol de las naciones, o simplemente el Apóstol, y constituye una de las personalidades señeras del cristianismo primitivo.

De sus epístolas auténticas surge que Pablo de Tarso reunió en su personalidad sus raíces judías, la gran influencia que sobre él tuvo la cultura helénica y su reconocida interacción con el Imperio romano cuya ciudadanía —en el decir del libro de los Hechos de los Apóstoles— ejerció. Pablo no cambió su nombre al abrazar la fe en Jesucristo como Mesías de Israel y Salvador de los gentiles ya que, como todo romano de la época, tenía un praenomen relacionado con una característica familiar , y un cognomen, el único usado en sus epístolas .

Su conocimiento de la cultura helénica —hablaba fluidamente tanto el griego como el arameo— le permitió predicar el Evangelio con ejemplos y comparaciones comunes de esta cultura por lo que su mensaje cosechó un pronto éxito en territorio griego. Pero esta característica también dificultó por momentos la exacta comprensión de sus palabras, ya que Pablo recurrió en ocasiones a nociones helenísticas alejadas del judaísmo mientras que otras veces habló como un judío estricto y observante de la Ley . De ahí que en la Antigüedad algunas de sus afirmaciones fueran calificadas como «τινα δυσνοητα» y que hasta hoy se susciten polémicas en la interpretación de ciertos pasajes y temas de las cartas paulinas, como por ejemplo la relación entre judíos y gentiles, entre gracia y Ley, etc. Por otra parte, es claro que sus epístolas fueron escritos de ocasión, respuestas a situaciones concretas. Por ello el análisis exegético moderno, más que esperar de cada una de ellas una formulación sistemática del pensamiento del Apóstol, examina las dificultades y particularidades que él presenta, analiza su evolución y debate sobre su integridad.

Sin haber pertenecido al círculo inicial de los Doce Apóstoles, y recorriendo caminos jalonados de incomprensiones y adversidades , Pablo se constituyó en artífice de primer orden en la construcción y expansión del cristianismo en el Imperio romano, merced a su talento, a su convicción y a su carácter indiscutiblemente misionero. Su pensamiento conformó el llamado cristianismo paulino, una de las cuatro corrientes básicas del cristianismo primitivo que terminaron por integrar el canon bíblico.

De las llamadas epístolas paulinas, la Epístola a los romanos, la Primera y la Segunda epístola a los corintios, la Epístola a los gálatas, la Epístola a los filipenses, la Primera epístola a los tesalonicenses y la Epístola a Filemón tienen en Pablo de Tarso su autor prácticamente indiscutido. Ellas son, junto con el libro de los Hechos de los Apóstoles, las fuentes primarias independientes cuyo exhaustivo estudio científico-literario permitió fijar algunas fechas de su vida, establecer una cronología relativamente precisa de su actividad, y una semblanza bastante acabada de su apasionada personalidad. Sus escritos, de los que nos han llegado copias tan antiguas como el papiro

{\displaystyle {\mathfrak {P}}}

46 datado de los años 175-225, fueron aceptados unánimemente por todas las Iglesias cristianas. Su figura, asociada con la cumbre de la mística experimental cristiana, resultó inspiradora en artes tan diversas como la arquitectura, la escultura, la pintura, la literatura, y la cinematografía y es para el cristianismo, ya desde sus primeros tiempos, una fuente ineludible de doctrina y de espiritualidad.

„Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.“

— Paul of Tarsus
Context: Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. I Corinthians Ch. 13 (KJV) The word "Charity" is here used as a translation of the Latin Caritas, and the original Greek Agape, which were words for "Love", and used to denote the highest and most self-transcending forms of Love. Variants: Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians Ch. 13 (NKJV) If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophesy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes in all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tounges, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing. For we know partially and we prophesy partially, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things. At present, we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known. So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians Ch. 13 (NASB) Now, there remain faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

„To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.“

— Paul of Tarsus
Context: Though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. I Corinthians 9:22 (KJV)

„For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.“

— Paul of Tarsus
Context: Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you? Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart. And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.  But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth. For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious. Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.

„I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.“

— Paul of Tarsus
Context: Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. [https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20Corinthians%201&version=SBLGNT;KJV 1: 17 - 31 (KJV)]

„Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.“

— Paul of Tarsus
Context: Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. Romans 3:19-31
