Dating of paulx27s letters

Acts 22:3 reveals that Paul was born “Saul” in Tarsus, which is in SE Asia Minor.

The Jerusalem Council visit recorded in chapter 15 of Acts would not have taken place until after Galatians was written, according to this view.Working backwards from Paul’s appearance before Gallio, we can date the start of Paul’s second missionary journey to 47–48 A.D., due to his staying in Corinth 18 months (Acts ).Paul only rarely uses “dateable” terms such as “after three years” (Galatians ), and Luke often uses rather generic statements, such as “after some days” (Acts ).This often makes coming to definitive conclusions regarding dates difficult.
