This is a mixture/edit of answers I've posted to the following questions on BH.SE: What does the prohibition against women speaking in church in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 mean? Is 1 Corinthians 14:33-35 an interpolation? Perhaps Paul didn't mean 'absolute silence at all times' in the churches Paul permits women to speak elsewhere, and Paul must be read ...

Why don't many churches obey Paul's command that women must be silent in church? 1 Corinthians 14:34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. In context Paul is talking about confusion in the church. The comment about women is ...

A quick answer is no. Jesus teachings were based on the Torah, hence Paul cannot be teaching about Jesus but teaching about the Teachings of Moses aka Torah.

If Paul was this fraud then why does the bible not tell us of these questions? It would have made Paul's ministry much easier. They had to accept that sorry guys he did ...

Jesus stated that he was sent to the lost sheep of Israel in: Matthew 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. But is not true that the salvation of God's grace through Jesus was reserved only to the Jews. As is indicated in the verses which follow that one. Matthew 15:25 through 28 Then came ...

The case is vast, and, quite literally, fills volumes. I'm currently reading New Testament People God Volume 1: Christian Origins And The Question Of God, for example, which addresses this topic at length. There are far too many arguments against this claim than can be addressed here (obviously), but some key points I have so far taken from the book ...

How was Saul changed to Paul? It's possible that Paul changed his own name, especially to divorce himself from his former Jewish activities, where he arrested and murdered many of Jesus' own. He may have changed his name to be better received by the church, because he was notorious throughout the whole church by the name of Saul. Church people feared him ...
