Guide[edit | edit source]

Question 1: There is no need to make a journey so far. The road is treacherous and long, and I will instead turn to the local community in Damascus to worship.

Question 2: His words are true, and though I yet hardly know them, I will explain myself to the man who told the sermon. I wish to participate in this feast and be like Christ.

Question 3: He is right. I admit, shamefully, that I was the one who persecuted you – but I have seen the light of Christ myself. I now praise the Lord, and I abstain from the lashings I once gave to those in Christ or violence of any kind. On this I swear.

Question 4: The brethren here must help me! I will inform them of my situation and beg for their mercy and aid. Surely they cannot leave a fellow brother in Christ at the mercy of the authorities?

Question 5: While I work in my trade as a tent-maker, I must make connections with the believers-in-Christ in Antioch. It is essential that I be accepted by others before preaching my own gospel.

Question 6: A good follower of Christ should be among the people and rewarded by them. Barnabas and I have no desire to be funded by the brethren in Antioch – we will work for our living no matter where we land.

Question 7: I will lay down the gospel I preach upon them the very same way I do upon the gentiles. When they hear its honest zeal and note how it aligns with their own, they will be convinced of my sincerity.

Question 8: I cannot turn from the gospel which was revealed to me, but I too cannot let my ministry end over grievance and suspicion. Titus must be circumcised.

Question 9: Let us focus on preaching in Antioch for the meanwhile. These are fertile grounds for Christ's word.

Question 10: Peter was more than pleased to share meals with the gentiles when he arrived, but look how his words change and turn when company follows him! This hypocrite should not be allowed to stop our mission to turn these disbelievers towards Christ.

Question 11: We must be direct and simple – our paschal lamb, Christ, has been sacrificed! The law has been fulfilled and there is no need for the Philippians to follow the rules they know Jews to follow.

Question 12: I will place a special emphasis on the return of Christ and the undoing of the world it will have. The first shall be last, and those who follow Christ in this life will be rewarded in the next – poor or uneducated, we are all brothers in his word.

Question 13: I will stress the importance of unity within the body of Christ, emphasizing that all believers are part of one body with diverse gifts and functions.

Question 14: I will seek divine revelation on the matter for their enlightenment and my own. What exactly happened to the Lord on that night?

Question 15: I shall break some bread and take my cup of wine. "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me. This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me."

Question 16: The congregation is confused. I will dictate a reply with my scribe: "Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words."

Question 17: Antioch is but a small jewel in comparison to the wonder of Jerusalem. I will head down the road to the city and focus on preaching to Jews and pagans there.

Question 18: Soon Christ will return, and there will be eternal life for those who follow him and destruction for those who do not turn from idols!

Question 19: It is wonderful to meet Apollos! I wish him the best on his journey and shall have a quick theological discussion with him.

Question 20: There's no use focusing on Apollos. He preaches as I do. Cephas, on the other hand, fundamentally misunderstands Christ. "A person is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not the written code. Such a person receives praise not from humans but from God."

Question 21: Slave or free means nothing in Christ! "Were you a slave when called? Do not be concerned about it. Even if you can gain your freedom, make the most of it. For whoever was called in the Lord as a slave is a freed person belonging to the Lord, just as whoever was free when called is a slave belonging to Christ."

Question 22: I must consult the Lord on this matter before I act.

Question 23: Paul, I foretell destruction and death upon the Corinthians should they fail to submit to my will – both in this life and the next.

Question 24: This constant battle exhausts me! I have every right as a minister of Christ that they do. "Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they descendants of Abraham? So am I. Are they ministers of Christ? I am talking like a madman—I am a better one: with far greater labors, far more imprisonments, with countless floggings, and often near death."

Question 25: This is an excellent opportunity to extend my gospel to Spain through Rome. I will dictate a letter detailing my gospel, and the Romans shall find it most agreeable.

Question 26: There is no use in doing anything about the barbaric Galatians, who have always been a militaristic and simple people. I will double down on my ministry here in Macedonia.

Question 27: This whole visit with those "super-apostles" is but a waste when they have opposed me so thoroughly before. I can spend my time more wisely by preaching in Jerusalem among my own people.

Question 28: I will accept my fate, I am more than eager to be with the Lord. I am a humble man.

Question 29: I am a Roman citizen! I have the right to appeal to Nero and be tried as a Roman in Rome.

Question 30: The Philippians need not worry. I care little for if I live or die. Remember to be humble and give to the poor. There is little else of value in the flesh.

Question 31: I will remind Philemon that we are all free in Christ and that, although Onesimus is a slave in the flesh, he is returning to Philemon as a brother.

Question 32: "I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ, for whenever I am weak, then I am strong."
