in response to reader comment: Who is wise but YHWH

Again, I must beg to differ. Shimon, who you call Peter, (a Greek name which Jews did not use) did not enlist Shauul who you call Paul (Another Greek name which Jews did not use) for anything. Those two were bitter enemies and would not even sit in the same room together let alone conspire to spread the word as you say.

Shauul was regarded by many as a charlatan and a pretender and not somebody to be trusted. My own folk had their own opinion of him and it was none too complimentary. Very little of what he claimed for himself was found to be true and he raised the ire of many when he tried to deny the LAW with his his trumped up Hellenistic notions of Jeshua. He never knew Yeshua the way Shimon did. Shaul was a late commer and only appeared on the scene after the debacle of the BarChochba rebelion which resulted in the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. It was known by many that he had been a captain of the Temple guards and for that reason no one trusted him as they thought of him as a Saddusee and a Roman collaborator.
