In this volume, Jan Dochhorn deals with Paul, who developed his myth of Adam using the Apocalypse of Moses as his background. Paul had become familiar with this in Jerusalem before he became a Christian. Thus he developed the idea of a cosmic doom of sin which is virtually unsurpassed in its asperity and at the same time allows for an astonishingly differentiated perception of the unredeemed human being.
