Paul was a chosen vessel of the Lord! A KJV Bible study guide.


Acts 9:5 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
Acts 9:16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.
Acts 9:17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.


2 Peter 3:16 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. [Many do not understand the letters written by Paul, among others, and interpret them to mean something quite different. Many end up chasing after new religions and traditions of men based on those misunderstandings. Stick with God's Word as it is written, it will never let you down.].


Philippians 3:4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: [Paul was saying that; If it were possible to be saved by trusting in the flesh, or the law, I would know, or experience even more than you. (Salvation will never come from the law or the flesh). "Salvation comes within through Jesus Christ].
Philippians 3:5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; [I was circumcised at eight days old and I am a pure-blooded citizen of Israel and a member of the tribe of Benjamin; (Romans 11), a real Hebrew if there was ever one, a member of the Pharisees, who demand the strictest obedience to the Jewish law. "Paul had all the credentials and obeyed the Jewish laws." He was a Hebrew of all Hebrews].
Philippians 3:6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. [I was so zealous that I persecuted the church; yet as for righteousness, I obeyed the law without fault. (Paul was saying he had the right to persecute the church because of the law). He would also say that it is better to do it according to God's way].
Philippians 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. [I thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. Paul saw the light].

Philippians 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ. [Everything else is worthless when compared to the "knowledge" of Christ Jesus my Lord. Getting to know Christ. How? Through the Word! Discarding everything else, counting it as garbage so that I may gain Christ. Discarding traditions of men and false teachings].


I personally have encountered a person of the Jewish faith that believes as the author below does:


[As a zealous convert who equated the Torah with death, Paul is deemed the father of anti-Judaism (the theological critique of Judaism as a religion), the grandfather of anti-Semitism (the hatred of Jews as people), and the inventor of the theology of the Cross (an excuse for many massacres of Jews). By Judith Shulevitz November 11, 2009] {It seems to me that this author plus others view Paul as a traitor of sorts. Christ didn’t}.


Paul was a chosen vessel of the Lord! Need I say anymore? Continue to study the word of God. Come to your own conclusions.
