About the Book

The title of this book may shock you. Of course Paul was not Virgin Born. Christians believe only Jesus of Nazareth was Virgin Born, but the reality is many people consider Paul as the "Great Lion of God." The Hebrew Scriptures prophesy the rise of the "Lion of the Tribe of Judah," which Christians believe is Jesus of Nazareth, descendant of King David and the true Messiah. This book does not demean Paul of Tarsus in spite of its title. It actually commends Paul of Tarsus for his incredible intelligence, wisdom, dedication, and vision. Yet in doing so it seeks to honor Jesus of Nazareth much more than Paul and honestly seeks to point out the humanity of Paul. The Hebrew Scriptures are incredibly honest about the weak points of leaders like Abraham and Moses, and kings like David and Solomon. The Four Gospels are incredibly honest about the weaknesses of the 12 Disciples of Jesus of Nazareth. Paul is incredibly honest about his own flaws. This book will help you see that Paul, sincere as he was, was just like everyone full of strengths and weaknesses but totally dedicated to Jesus of Nazareth.

About the Author

When he became a follower of Jesus of Nazareth Ron read the entire Hebrew Scriptures and Christian Scriptures and every footnote and cross reference in the Scofield Reference Bible. For more than fifty years as a Christian Minister and as an U.S. Army Chaplain he has repeatedly seen people quote Paul of Tarsus and say, "Jesus said." Many Christians mistake Paul's words for Jesus' words. Sincere Christians are often more focused on Paul than Jesus. Sincere Christians tend to read Paul's epistles more than the four Gospels that are wholly about Jesus. Paul wrote many more letters than Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. This book comes from half a century of anguish. Paul himself says that all he cared about was lifting high Jesus of Nazareth as the Messiah and as the Son of the Living God. Ron believes Paul would totally agree with the title of this book and with the main thesis of this book which is, "It is all about Jesus."
