in response to reader comment: Hebrew Holy Bible Contains No Fiction

I never knew the point of Muslim wisdom which proposes Paul to be the "Corrupter of the Gospel" although it brings to mind the phrase; you can fool some of the people some of the time …" On the point of the acceptance of Paul by Peter there is some confusion on the part of most visible Christians. 1st and 2nd Peter was not written by Peter. Those two volumes were written to the Laodiceans, and dictated by Paul to his amanuensis; Silas aka Silvanus.

You see the early church fathers needed a plausible reason for their congregations to accept Pauline writing so they simply changed the titles of those two volumes. The words in 2 Pe 3:15 "… even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you …" are actually a signature and an addendum written by Silvanus just like the signature and the addendum in 1 Pe 5:12 "… by Silvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, I have written briefly…".
