May be I am misunderstanding you both, but are you saying that the apostle Paul never met Jesus?
I f you are, then I would like to demonstrate that Paul did know Jesus. Paul was formerly known as "Saul of Tarsus". Later he chose to be called by the name of "Paul".
(Act s 9:1-5)
"And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, 'Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?' And he said, 'Who art thou, Lord?' And the Lord said, 'I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: [it is] hard for thee to kick against the pricks.' "
I t is clear to me that Paul or Saul did indeed meet the resurrected Jesus.
"Then Saul, (who also [is called] Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,...."
So , can you explain to me why you think Paul never met Jesus? Just a question. I am very curious.
