yea , Paul says "I" an awful lot. I did this and that and say this and that. Paul is a woman hater too.
my jw mom often will try to quote a scripture saying that Jesus said it, and Ill correct her and say, no Paul said that, and she will argue that whatever Paul said , it may as well been Jesus, because Jesus, told Paul to be the man of God that we shall follow. ok then.
and she also insists it was Jesus who set up the christian church. sigh.
anyway, so if we carefully read each letter, or even any book of the bible, we simply cannot apply it to any other audience than who it was written to, they had no concept of a future world who would read these texts.
I have yet to find a scripture that tells we readers that tells us there is a three fold or even two fold prophesy .
you would think if that was soooo important there would be ample evidence.
what most people forget is this, at the time of Jesus and apostle Paul, no one had the book we have today, so when they were referring to the scriptures they were referring to what they only had which were the writings of a few Jewish scribes, and the mosaic law. and even at that so few people could read writing that they believed anything they were told was on a scroll.
since we obviously are not under that law, it matters not to us.
