    It is clear from scripture that Paul did not qualify to be the replacement for Judas and that leaves the question: Why one more?

    Twelve was not enough, but thirteen is?
    Judas was gone.

      again, questioning God. maybe you can do better. you decide what's enough Apostles. maybe you don't like the job some of them did. after all, John Mark kept turning around and leaving. that's Mark, by the way, you know, the Gospel author ? who else don't you particularly care for ?

        Good answer!

        We were all enemies, that would include Saul of Tarsus.

        Then why did he choose you or me, seeing that we were enemies?

        As I pointed out, does scripture name Saul and directly say that he is an enemy, no that I have found.

        Yet, as you point out, he is included with you and me and Gm and all those who have believed

        You, heir, are not directly named as an enemy.

        Yet you were, even as Saul was
        I'm not sure why you keep commenting in this thread. The point of the question, "Why Paul?" is to get people to wake up. There was no need for God to make an unscheduled appearance(s) and reach down to save the chief of sinners, unless He was going to reveal to and through Paul something different and sure enough that is what we see in the scriptures!

        Romans 16:25-26 KJV, 1 Corinthians 2:6-8 KJV, Galatians 1:11-12 KJV, Galatians 1:15-16 KJV, Ephesians 3:1-6 KJV, 2 Timothy 1:8-10 KJV
        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!

            Go find out why in Romans through Philemon.

              Jesus saves completely. http://www.climatedepot.com/ http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

              Titus 1

              For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

              Ephesians 5

              11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

                Judas was replaced by Matthias, numbered with the eleven making them twelve.

                No need for Paul unless God had a secret!

                    Why do you keep talking to yourself? It's a bit odd.

                        It was not something different as far as the Kingdom of God is concerned.

                        (if you are not in His Kingdom you are not living under the King )

                        Paul was an example for all men who believed who had not seen Christ before His crucifixion.

                        However both the 12 Apostles and Paul taught the same thing. (acts 15)

                        LA
                        My theology is that the elect of Israel became the scattered church among the nations, and when filled up with the full number of gentiles who believe to become one with them, then Christ will return and gather them, and God will then pour out His wrath on the unbelievers of both Jew and Gentile.

                          As you've been told. Paul does not have the scriptural qualifications to replace Judas. See Acts 1:13-26

                                No doubt you're crazy or blind! Paul (then Saul) could not have been forgiven under the kingdom program (neither in that world, neither in the world to come Matthew 12:31-32 KJV) UNLESS God was going to shew forth something new to and through him and that is EXACTLY what saith the scripture 1 Timothy 1:16 KJV! And it's also clear from the scriptures that the gospel that Paul was given by revelation of Jesus Christ was before a mystery (Romans 16:25-27 KJV, 1 Corinthians 2:6-8 KJV). You reject the truth, i get that.
