This wonderfully creative story of the life and times of the Apostle Paul also features the saga of a fictitious but special sacred quill handed down from generation to generation by the holy men of Israel to write the Holy Scriptures.
Bible students and adults of all ages will find this Bible tale very heart warming and will leave you wondering about the Quill: Where is it now? This saga of Paul's life is loosely structured after the accounts found in the Bible, but the tale of the sacred quill is intended exclusively for the fun of your imagination.
While all of the missing pieces of Paul's life are filled in with my own personal guess work, the integrity of the Holy Scripture is never compromised. In this story, you will have the benefit of moving back and forth through time, enabling you to see and relate to how life should be again with a little courage and obedience.
The Thirteenth Apostle and the Sacred Quill is Biblically based and is intended to glorify our Lord Jesus Christ through the trials and tribulations of that great Jewish Apostle to the Gentiles named Saul of Tarsus, or Paul.
The concept behind this story was spawn from the debate of who actually replaced Judas-Iscariot. The Apostle Paul was chosen by Jesus Christ Himself to be the Apostle of the Gentiles, while Matthias was chosen by the Apostles to complete the number twelve.
The debate comes through the silence of the Scriptures. God never mentioned in the book of Acts that He wanted the Apostles to choose another man on their own. But they did it anyway, choosing between two different men. It was conceivably possible that they even casted the lots of the Urim and the Thummim to help them make their choice.
Consider carefully, for if there were two men to choose from, and they had to throw lots to determine their choice, then how could it be God's doing without the High Priest to do it?
Do you actually believe that the name of Matthias is found in the Foundation Wall of that great city "New Jerusalem" as mentioned in Revelation 21:14 over the name of Paul? With the exception of Bible Scriptures spoken by Biblical Characters, no part of this adventure story is intended to be 100% accurate.
May God bless you and keep you, and may His face shine upon you. May you come to the knowledge of the truth, which is seen in the face of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Amen!
