The gospel according to Paul is unique and special. The understanding of Apostle Paul to the gospel was only revealed to him and not to the rest of the apostles. But later on, Paul shared it to the rest of the disciples as it was also written for us in several books in the bible. He may be the best apostle to some but definitely he was not the least of the apostles. He wrote that himself using his reverse positive psychology. I didn’t know that already existed thousands of years ago. He was humble but not really. I believe, He was just telling the truth. He knew that and was certain with it. Check this verse.
2 Corinthians 11:15 – For I suppose I was not a whit behind the very chiefest apostles.
The four gospel books namely Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are historical accounts and narrations of our Lord Jesus Christ’s life and words. Although, the revelations of Apostle Paul to the gospel was intriguing and far more elaborate. He preached the gospel in his own interpretations and understandings through the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:10 – But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
Galatians 1:15-16 – But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,
Verse 16 – To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
The Gospel According to Paul
Paul’s role in the gospel was specific and certain. It was destined by God that the great understanding about the son will be revealed only to him. Unlike the twelve, he was not personally taught by our Lord Jesus Christ. He has no apparent relationship with our Lord before his conversion. However, when it comes to revelations and understandings he was not behind but advance.
Peter advised everyone to endure Paul’s teaching and writings since some are really hard to understand. Paul wrote a lot of things for us. Since all of his books are dominantly dedicated for the gentiles. As we all know, he is the apostle of the gentiles.
2 Peter 3:15 – And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
verse 16 – As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
Paul gave us his wisdom through his writings. But many does not truly understand it. Some may disregard, discredit and others never take it seriously. The gospel according to Paul is salvation to everyone that believes. It is the gospel that was hidden from ages and generations. It was about the true knowledge of the son. For which, the son was the only savior and is the only savior to come.
Ephesians 3:3 – How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
2 Corinthians 4:4 – In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Paul was the culmination and finality of God’s promises. And through it, we can only attain the real glory of our Lord God. He is the creator of everything and the Almighty God. He deserves the highest praise and worship.
