In acts it tells how the authority for Saul's ministry is in Isaiah, ever actually read it all? Basically, while old testament prophecy talks about a new covenant, Saul's ain't the one it's talking about. Saul was first sent out to convert Jews to Messianic Judaism, he failed, then he was sent out to gentiles, and he failed, until he created this wonderful new covenant. Jesus knew the prophecy, the real apostles knew the prophecy, They tried to fulfill it, because they knew it. Saul either didn't or he wanted a support base, and lied. In the end, The church of Jerusalem that the apostles built was scattered to the winds by the Romans, Several apostles and James were killed, and the early Saul inspired church thrived and soon far outnumbered the original Christians, with his lowered bar, and was free to write the history.There is NO prophecy in the old testament that references Saul's new covenant, and the one he claims did, plain azz doesn't. In the three hundreds gentile priests incited a gentile riot which killed or put to flight the last followers of the Church of Jerusalem surviving in Rome, and burnt their temples. I wonder why. Do the words "Until heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or tittle.. ." ring a bell for you?
