I find that it is interesting that much of the Christianity that we have today is based on a Paul’s vision of Jesus, yet Paul never met Jesus, and only met 1 of the original disciples (Peter) along with James, the brother of Jesus.
Really? Yes. Read the letters of Paul carefully. After his vision on the way to Damascus, he didn’t rush to Jerusalem to join the brothers and become a follower, but rather disappeared into Arabia for a time (years?). It was only years later that he went to Jerusalem; but because the Followers of the Way (they weren’t called Christians for decades more) didn’t trust him, they never let him meet the whole group, just Peter and James.
