Yes I do. I have a very good Bible search software in my computer and it has the possibility to search from numerous Bibles translations from its database.
On the other hand, it is not only Paul who witness to the Divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ. Have you forgotten the 12 Apostles? Their testimonies were written in the Gospels. The oral testimonies predates the written Gospels. It is the same Gospel message. The Gospels gives witness to the identity of Christ Jesus.
We can’t speculate about the countenance of the oral testimonies that predated the written Gospels, so we are left to look at the written ones.
Among the apostles you mentioned, I think Peter was the closest to Jesus Christ. So what did Peter believe about the nature of Jesus?
There is an instance in the Bible where Jesus asked his companions who they think he was. That instance is reported in the three synoptic Gospels: Mark, Mathew and Luke; would the apostles have answered incorrectly, Jesus would have certainly been very swift to correct them.
MT 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
Mt 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Mk 8:29 And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.
Lk 9:20 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.
As you can see above it was Peter who answered Jesus, and the three gospels show three different answers, which one is correct? And please notice that none of the gospels reports that Peter said “you are God”, If Jesus was God, he would have immediately corrected Peter as he would have omitted one very important aspect of the supposed nature of his master.
Only Mt 16:16 states that Peter mentioned the son ship of Jesus to God, but son was also used to mean “servant” in those times. The ongoing verses Mt 16:17 to 19 shows a reaction to Peter’s answer from Jesus, but that reaction is not found in Luke or Mark. Jesus said to Peter: Mat 16:17 “17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.” If it was the Father who inspired the answer of Peter, then the Father omitted to reveal to him a very important thing, mainly the supposed divinity of Jesus.
The fact alone that Saul persecuted the Christians because of their belief in Christ is a testimony of the veracity of Paul’s writings when he converted to Christianity.
How do you know he persecuted them because of their belief in the nature of Jesus Christ as being God or His son? It could well be that Saul persecuted them simply because they were his (Jesus) followers. Jesus was hated and so were his followers. Moreover, Paul himself gave a hint to why he persecuted Jesus followers when he wrote to the Galatians saying:
“GAL 1:13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:
GAL 1:14 And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers”
As you can see, he persecuted the early Christians because he said he was “exceedingly zealous" of the traditions of his fathers, it was all about traditions; the early Christians deviated from the traditions of the fathers of Saul (and their fathers, those followers were Jews after all) and it was enough reason to persecute them. They believed that Jesus was the Christ (the Messiah) as show above in Peter’s answer to the question of Jesus, a belief the Jews could not cope with, they are still waiting for the Messiah to come, while he was among them 2000 years ago.
Muslims also believe that Jesus (peace be upon him) was the Messiah as well as a prophet of God. He, as well as his mother, are held in high esteem by Muslims and if my memory does not fail me, his mother is the only woman ever cited in the whole Quran.
PS: Not being a Christian, I tend not to approach the Christian scriptures with the same feeling of holiness as my Christian friends. I ask forgiveness from anyone who feels offended by what I wrote. It is not my intent to offend anyone.
