Conservative Bible scholars think Paul wrote Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus and Philemon.

Others believe that it is only accurate to assign his authorship to Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Philemon, Galatians, Philippians and 1 Thessalonians. They think he may have only written parts or none of the other epistles due to changes in writing style and content.
