JESUS of NAZARETH
or Paul's Jesus?
Jesus of Nazareth is to be carefully distinguished from the Jesus or
Christ of Paul. The churchmen, while preserving Jesus of Nazareth in the
gospels, have not noticed the distinction because, seeing Jesus through the eyes
of Paul, the shadow of Paul’s Jesus lies over the gospels and darkens their
hearts and minds when they read. Nevertheless, through the centuries, there have
been a few individuals who have known Jesus as he truly is, and their existence
provides an unbroken chain of witnesses. This is the situation as it continues
today. Understanding the distinction between Jesus of Nazareth and Paul's Jesus is vital for our eternal salvation depends upon it.
Beginning with our January 2010 edition, we invite you to join us in a reading of Paul: The Stranger, written by Edgar Jones. This work, written in a five book series,
witnesses to the defining difference found between the Jesus of
Nazareth that we believe is the Truth with that of Paul's made-up
For February 2010, we continue our focus on Book 1,Jesus, the first
book in Paul: The Stranger series. We will continue on with Book 2, Paul in
our next monthly issue. We are witnesses to the Truth found in Jesus of Nazareth. As always, we
invite you to go directly to the Words of Jesus for the Truth as he is our
Master and Teacher.
