Paul, The Scribe, The mastermind of Christianity

Paul, the scribe of Jesus is the hand of God holding a pen. Paul was the chosen scribe of Jesus whose writings have formed the basis of the literature of Christianity which is widely read today. Mystery has surrounded the question as to who told the stories of the New Testament. The clue to this answer comes from two places; the beginning of Luke and the first line of the Acts of the Apostles.

The Acts of the Apostles chapter 1, verse 1 states: The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus of all that Jesus began both to do and teach. The book of Luke Chapter 1 verses 1 – 3 states that: Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us. 2. Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word. 3. It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus.

By comparing the opening three verses of the book of Luke addressed to Theophilus and the opening verse of the Acts of the apostles also addressed to Theophilus their essence and meaning are identical. It flows from these two books that the person with knowledge of the Acts of the Apostles will then be capable of writing the four gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke and John.

The person with knowledge of all the works of Jesus as told to him was Paul. Paul in essence is the mastermind behind the books of the New Testament. He was a scribe, with excellent writing skills, fluent in writing and speaking Greek. He traveled to Greece and even wrote letters to the Romans convincing them to convert to Christianity. The mastermind behind the books of the new testament was most certainly Paul, for he was the one person that knew the story of the life of Jesus, he was a scribe, and also fluent in Greek, for the new testament was written in the Greek Language. The centerpiece of the four gospels which is the book of Luke was most likely written by Paul who gave them to Theophilus.
Paul was never a witness to the life of Jesus but the stories of the life of Jesus was known to him. Not being a witness he wrote the story of Luke to Theophilus as a story told by Luke. The writings of the four gospels seemed different from the letters of Paul to the Romans Corinthians, Galatians, Phillippians, Thessalonians, Timothy, Philemon, Titus, Hebrews, all these were written by Paul.

The entire works of the New Testament bible is the mastermind of Paul, for it is Paul that transformed Jesus from prophet to God. It is Paul that connected Jesus to Christ and the gospels and words of Jesus ascribed to Jesus are actually the words of Paul, the scribe. Paul as the scribe of Jesus was the hand of God with a pen in the hand. Paul most certainly is the mastermind of Christianity for the foundations of the church are his writings. The Holy Ghost was an angel of the God YHVH, most specifically the angel Emmanuel, but the writings came from Paul.

Paul’s main theme and angle of writing is to establish Jesus as the son of God, for it was for this reason that Jesus was crucified by the Jews. Jesus having been crucified, and the apostles persecuted and killed, the intent was to proof that the Jews were wrong and that Jesus was indeed the son of God.

In the book of Acts the account is given that the elders of the Jews put many of the apostles in prison preaching in the name of Jesus. Stephen a later apostle was even put to death for preaching in the name of Jesus. Paul himself was arrested for preaching the message that Jesus was the son of God. Jesus himself was crucified for saying he was the son of God. So the central theme of the writings was to make the accusers guilty for having persecuted both Jesus and the apostles over this statement.

The gospels were thus written from a single point of view that Jesus was the son of God. Of all the prophets that ever lived why was this angle so important? John the Baptist was conceived by the Holy Ghost, but it did not seem to matter. Paul has done an impressive work as a scribe for Jesus, and he has cleverly presented the works as if they were the works of many people, when it is actually the writings of one person. If he had presented the four gospels as his own work, the world of course would have probably discarded them for they would have said that this story about Jesus is actually the story of Paul. Doubt would have overshadowed the writings for Paul was not a witness to the birth, life and resurrection of Jesus, so how could he write as if he was present. Paul was clever to present them as if they were the works of the apostles, even though he was the writer. The angle made the story more credible, and for this we applaud him.
