OK, I am surrounded by men, so naturally you mistake my femaleness for male.
That's ok, been told I have a strong mind, and supposedly that is a masculine trait.
Now, will you respect me in the morning?
Ok, Okcity, beg to understand your 13th apostle...
Because Paul was the one who took the place of Judas, or so I have always heard....
Than again, maybe I was BOY WATCHING in class.
So, who was the 12th b4 Paul??
If I am not mistaken, Matthew was also one who preached to the Jews...as per why his scriptures are more mild.....
Luke spoke also to the gentiles....and so Paul, and Peter were certainly not alone in their works,....just they wrote more.
Actually, the Orthodox church broke off the Universal church.
They remained almost in constancy, but the Orthodox church had emperors for leaders...in addition to bishops.
Where as leaders such as emperors were opposed to the Papacy. The Papacy, however, is the leader as per Christ of His church on earth, so ya have to believe that although one followed the east, the other the west, that the break off, tho unfortunate, occured because of leadership disagreements. Go figure.
So you had two churches. One under the law (jewish) and one under grace (gentile).
The confusion is that you might believe there were 2 seperate forms of religion. Although again, several churches, but all following the one church....
The styles of preaching were different.
They had full intent to convert the jews, because they were the choosen ones, and they were supposed to preach to them 1st, and then the gentiles...etc etc
