After years of teaching ministry, I have come to believe that we are simply looking at the book of Acts through the wrong lens. Many before me have come to this conclusion as well. After years of comparing Scripture with Scripture, I have questioned old assumptions and believe that the modern church is taking things that belong to the Nation of Israel and misapplying them to the Body of Christ. The result has led to constant attempts to overcome seemingly glaring contradictions that exist between the message of the Twelve and that of Paul. The contradictions disappear once the preset filter is removed.
