  1. Paul confirmed the deity of Christ using the OT.

    Paul was very knowledgeable of all scripture (unlike so many here on TOL) and uses the OT to confirm the deity of Christ.

    In this passage from Philippians (particularly verse 10), Paul is referring to the OT about the LORD God.

    Php 2:5-11 KJV
    (5) Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
    (6) Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
    (7) But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant,
  2. Paul says that Jesus is the LORD GOD

    Rom 14:10-12 (AKJV/PCE)
    (14:10) But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. (14:11) For it is written, [As] I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. (14:12) So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

    This is the passage that Paul is quoting from:

    Isa 45:21-23 (AKJV/PCE)
    (45:21) Tell ye, and bring [them]

  3. Luke started accompanying Paul beginning in Acts 16

    It must escape many peoples notice that Luke was following the twelve apostles in Jerusalem during most of his writing. The book of the Acts of the apostles begins as a continuation of the epistle bearing his name. Luke says so in the first verse of Acts:

    Acts 1:1 (KJV)
    (1:1) The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

    But, in Acts 16, we can see that the personal pronouns suddenly change:

    Acts 16:6-15 (KJV)

  4. Paul did not write Hebrews; we do not know who did

    Every book that Paul wrote had "Paul" as the first word.

    Rom 1:1 (AKJV/PCE)
    (1:1) Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called [to be] an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
    1Cor 1:1 (AKJV/PCE)
    (1:1) Paul, called [to be] an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes [our] brother,
    2Cor 1:1 (AKJV/PCE)
    (1:1) Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy [our] brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the

  5. Another gospel in Galatians 1

    Many claim that Galatians 1 precludes multiple gospels. But it's simply them ignoring context as is too typical of many.

    Gal 1:6-9 (AKJV/PCE)
    (1:6) I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: (1:7) Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. (1:8) But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him
