35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
Ephesians 5:22-28 (KJV)
There’s no doubt that Paul was a great mind who resolved many of the issues relating to the Gentiles as they became newly grafted-in Israelites. His writings, when understood in proper context are filled with wisdom. But Paul was also a product of his culture. He was a Pharisee who knew the Talmud, including the Mishnah, and used the Oral Law in his own instructions. Continue reading “Paul Teaches the Talmud”
