2 Corinthians: It seems that Paul’s qualifications for Apostleship were still in question. The rule is (from Acts 1) that the Apostle had to be among the 12 from the beginning of Jesus’ ministry through the Ascension. Under those terms Paul does not qualify. To further erode Paul’s credentials was his persecution of the Church early on. The thing is God is not governed by man’s rules. He rules, makes up the rules and is Sovereign over the rules.
