The Reliable Theology of the Apostle Paul

The Reliable Theology of the Apostle Paul

Additional testimonies to his message:
a. It aligned with God’s eternal plan from the first pages of THIS book to gather out of the whole world a new Kingdom community guided by hearts aligned to him by intimacy through the Holy Spirit.
b. Aligns to the message of Jesus. Not about what you eat or drink, wash or tithe. The whole law is Love God and your neighbor as yourself. John 6:29 “The work of God is to believe in the one he has sent.
c. Eventually agreed upon by the other Apostles and NT writers. See Acts 15 and the Great Jerusalem Council. Read Peter in the NT where he refers to Paul’s challenging letters as inspired Scripture!
d. His commissioning and message was corroborated by Ananias in Acts 9 – an external, initially reluctant, clear testifier to Paul’s calling and mission.
e. His whole life conformed to his message at great personal cost. After he regained his sight, he walked into the local synagogue and started preaching Jesus. They tried to kill him. He maintained that course.
f. His ministry was established by many signs and wonders like Jesus and the other Apostles:
i. Miraculous intervention in prison that leads to salvations– Acts 15:12
ii. Eutychus raised from the dead in Troas – Acts 20:7-12
iii. Jesus directed miraculous survival of shipwreck (1 of 3) – Acts 27:27-44
iv. Zero effect deadly viper bite – Acts 28:3-5
v. Father of Publius healed – Acts 28:8
vi. Barnabas- accounts of the signs and wonders God did among the Gentiles through               them -15:12
