      Great! You are way older than I thought.

        2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

        Paul defines the word of truth as the gospel of your salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV, Ephesians 1:13 KJV). Now, study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed by rightly dividing it!

          Yes. So where did I go wrong?

            The Lord already had his 12 men (Matthew 10:1-4 KJV) preaching the gospel of the kingdom/ the kingdom of heaven is at hand and later Matthias replaced Judas being numbered with the eleven (Acts 1:25-26 KJV) restoring the number of them to 12 who were preaching a gospel and will in the future judge the twelve tribes of Israel (Matthew 19:28). So then you have to ask yourself:


            Why Paul?

            Why did the Lord have to appear to Paul Himself if this was all the same good news?

            Why not just send one of the 12?
            Paul is one of the few Pharisees still trying his best to keep the Law to a high standard. He however is dead as he persecuted Christians and behaved as a stumbling block in the way of God's salvation plan. God thus saved him with mercy by converting him to a Christian.

            As a brilliant Pharisee, Paul knows in-depth details of the OT law. His job is thus to give a theological explanation of the New Covenant.

            Most Pharisees in Jerusalem did not accept Christ. Jesus had to use the more open minded Jews in Galilee as His witnesses. However, they are not as theologically familiar with the OT Law as a Pharisee does. While Paul, as a hardcore Pharisee, will have to be converted supernaturally.

                Because he was a 'hardcore', non-wishee washee, Pharisee with the knowledge base he possessed, supernatural salvation was probably the only way he could have ever been converted. Ever wonder why God chose him over any other pharisee as smart as him if that wasn't the reason?

                    We don't tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters exist.
                    They already know monsters exist.

                          Hi GM , and when we write that what Paul preached was HIDDEN from the Ages and Generations , they will not believe Col 1:25 -26 and that now , Eph 1:4 , is finally revealed to all and that we will be TROPHIES of His Grace through out the Unverse , Eph 2:7 and would rather be here on earth with the Nation of Israel !

                              There's a lot of confused posters around here Dan. They need
                              to start reading/studying the writings of Paul! (Romans--Philemon!)
