Jesus's Words

Paul to the Circumcised, Peter and Company to the Uncircumcised

Paul claims multiple times that he is the apostle to the gentiles.(Acts 13:47, 22:21, Romans 11:13, Galatians 1:16, 1st Timothy 2:7, Ephesians 3:8.) Paul claims that Peter was to minster to the circumcised, while Paul was to go to the gentiles. (For he who worked through Peter for his apostolic ministry to the circumcised worked also through me for mine to the Gentiles), and when James and Cephas and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given to me, they gave the right hand of fellowship to Barnabas and me, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised.Galatians 2:8, 9

Paul makes it appear that he was the only one that was to speak to the Gentiles. Peter says otherwise. And after there had been much debate, Peter stood up and said to them, "Brothers, you know that in the early days God made a choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe.Acts 15:7

Whatever Peter has to say pales compared to what our Lord Jesus has to say on this matter. Beware of men, for they will deliver you over to courts and flog you in their synagogues, and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the Gentiles.Matthew 10:18

So Jesus said his disciples would bear witness before the Gentiles, in terrible conditions to boot! He also said in the Great Commission. Afterward he appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at table, and he rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who saw him after he had risen. And he said to them, Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.Mark 16:14-16 cf. Matthew 28:18-20

Our Lord Jesus Christ must have made a mistake. He did not say to the apostles they were only to go to those whose penises lacked a bit of flesh, or that he would raise up Paul to go to those who had extra flesh. How silly of Jesus to have forgotten that.

I am being sarcastic. It is not Jesus who is wrong. Jesus is the Truth. And since Jesus is the Truth, that makes anyone who claims something contrary to Jesus, false.

Value of this Evidence

This is fantastic evidence against Paul being a real apostle of Jesus. Paul asserted that Peter and his men were to keep the gospel confined to the circumcised, when both Jesus and Peter say otherwise.
