What is Your evangel,
Paul's or Peter's,
In this brochure the Bible quotes are from the Concordant literal Bible (CLV). Published by: Concordant.org , and a free computer concordance (with an Old Testament and New Testament CLV) is available at Scripture4All.org
Paul's writings come from the “New Testament” and are found in 14 books. All but Hebrews start with his name: Galatians, Hebrews 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians,1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Romans, Ephesians, Philippians, Philemon, Colossians, 1 Timothy, Titus, 2 Timothy. The first seven books were written to the Jews and Gentiles – Jew first, and the last seven were written for the Church Today (ecclesia which is His body). See the book by Danny Russino for additional Scriptural information (Chapter 8...etc.).
and Peter were trained by Jesus as to what He wanted them to do.
Peter and the 11 apostles were trained as they followed Jesus
for 3 years in Israel, just before He went to the cross. Paul
(Saul), on the other hand, was trained by Jesus after He arose
from the death of the cross:
(9:3) Now in his going he came to be nearing Damascus. Suddenly a light out of heaven flashes about him. (9:4) And falling on the earth, he hears a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?" (9:5) Yet he said, "Who art Thou, Lord?" Yet He said, "I am Jesus Whom you are persecuting. (9:6) Nevertheless, rise and enter the city, and it will be spoken to you what you must be doing."
Paul's tasks and Peter's tasks were quite different, one from another. Paul was to teach the nations (called the Uncircumcision – those who had nothing to do with Israel) and Peter's task was to teach the Circumcision (those of Israel).
Paul talking: Galatians 2:7 But, on the contrary, perceiving that I have been entrusted with the evangel of the Uncircumcision, (2:8) according as Peter of the Circumcision (for He Who operates in Peter for the apostleship of the Circumcision operates in me also for the nations), (2:9) and, knowing the grace which is being given to me, James and Cephas and John, who are supposed to be pillars, give to me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we, indeed, are to be for the nations, yet they for the Circumcision- (2:10) only that we may be remembering the poor, which same thing I endeavor also to do.
Another difference between Paul's and Peter's work, is that on Jesus' return, the believers of the nations would be teaching the celestials (those living throughout the universe), and the believers of the Circumcision would be teaching those of the earth.
Paul's evangel: Ephesians 6:12 for it is not ours to wrestle with blood and flesh, but with the sovereignties, with the authorities, with the world-mights of this darkness, with the spiritual forces of wickedness among the celestials.
Peter's evangel: Revelation 5:9 And they are singing a new song, saying, "Worthy art Thou to be taking the scroll and to open its seals, For Thou wast slain and dost buy us for God by Thy blood. Out of every tribe and language and people and nation. (5:10) Thou dost also make them a kingdom and a priesthood for our God, And they shall be reigning on the earth."
The Bible has two main teachings, the 14 books from Paul and the
balance of the Bible for the Israelites. Both the Nations
(Gentiles, Uncircumcision), and the Israelites (Jews,
Circumcision), can learn from the entire Bible about how God
works, but the Nations get their commands only from Paul and the
Israelites from the balance of the Bible. Jesus Christ is in
charge of both groups, including all the unbelievers, until He
turns them all over to His Father:
The back page, of this brochure, shows some comparisons between Bible statements made from Paul's evangel and from Peter's evangel. In comparing the two you may began to see why “...Rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Tim 2:15) is so important in obtaining a clear understanding of what God, our Father is telling us through the Scriptures.
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.
Blessed be the Lord God and Father of our Lord, Christ Jesus.
