An investigation into the possibility that the Apostle Paul might have been writing in the mid to late 1st century BCE.

Still mostly in the research phase right now.

I am a freelance writer for 6 years and only now I publish my own book! It's history of Yakuza(Gokudo) which is written as a fiction from the first person
Some chapters are written by the Japanese writer, of course, I checked them on plagiarism at Free Online Plagiarism Checker With Percentage by EduZaurus
His chapters are great, I think
I hope that soon it'll be done and I'll share it!)

Wait... what?

How could Paul, who wrote about Jesus, have been writing before he was born? Unless you are pushing back the birth of Jesus a century or so?

I have been looking into the mater and have found nothing that negates it.

If anyone can show me a reason that Paul must be writing in the 1st century CE. I would love to know about it.

Doesn't the fact that he's writing about Jesus, who wasn't born in the 1st century BC negate it?

Unless, as I mentioned, you are arguing for a push back of Jesus' timeline into that century?

That Jesus was a man living in the 1st century is a construct of the Gospels which postdate Paul.

If I am right about when Paul is writing (by no means a given) then the first Gospel (Mark?) was written at least a century after Paul (mid 90's I think). Paul I think may be writing in the time period between the establishment of Corinth as a Roman veteran settlement colony by Julius Caesar and the later quarter of the 1st century BCE.

As far as I know there is no way to prove my speculation about when Paul is writing, but then scholars have failed to show proof that Paul is writing in the 1st century either, and I have looked hard for any such proofs.

Aside from the story of Acts, there is nothing in Paul's actual letters that cannot be contested as 1st century origin and some very intriguing hints that seem to point to a BCE origin instead.
