WHERE does Paul quote Jesus TEACHINGS, or SAYINGS?
Where does he mention the nature miracles, or water into wine, or resurrection of Lazarus? Surely those would be proof of his Sonship.
Where does he mention his strong anti-authoritarian streak?
I would question that they are Christians if they deny that the Bible is the Word of God. Nominal, liberal, pseudo-Christians should not be confused with the real thing.
Shame on you. You insist that YOUR way is the only christian way; this is the definition of arrogance and judging, anathema to Jesus. What if I just like what Jesus said? What if I see his rejection of religious structure of his day as a good reason to reject the religious structure of ours. including judgemental fundamentals like yourself? What if he was just a man who had a revolutionary idea, that is, to pray for your enemies?
What if his best idea is to distrust entrenched religious institutions, as they indeed become corrupted by power?
That is enough lesson for me.
The rest, his miracles, his resurrection, etc, is all just wishful thinking by those who could not understand why he died and had to find a reason for it.
Pauline theology has a strong Christological foundation.
Yes, but not as laid out by Jesus, that is my point. Paul develops, invents, all by himself the idea that the slain Jew Jesus is the messiah; the problem is that Paul, influenced by the culture and mystery religions of the day, sees Jesus as a risen messiah, and asks that we drink his blood just like the pagans. Think about it. The Bible is not history, but a slanted take on what happened with a view to making it match up to prophecy.
Your issue, and all fundamental christians, is that you think you can take Paul's words at face value, that they mean now what they meant then, instead of understanding them in the context of wartime in the Levant and coming from a persecuted minority who used literature as a way to strike back at their enemies.
The point of my question is that YOU still have not answered it: why no mention of teachings and miracles by Paul, Jesus' greatest booster?
ANSWER: They did not exist when Paul wrote, or he DID NOT BELIEVE THEM.
They are the invention of those who sought to bolster the case for Jesus' divinity.
