Why was Paul Disliked by the Jews?

By Sami Zaatari



As we all know, the so called apostle Paul didn't think too much of the Jewish law, and brought his own new doctrine up. What makes this all the more interesting is that this isn't a simple Muslim accusation, far from it. In fact when we read the Gospel of Acts, we find that Jews were angry at Paul for breaking the law and making it nothing!

Acts 21: 27-30:

27 And when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews which were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on him, 28 Crying out, Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all men every where against the people, and the law, and this place: and further brought Greeks also into the temple, and hath polluted this holy place. 29 (For they had seen before with him in the city Trophimus an Ephesian, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple.) 30 And all the city was moved, and the people ran together: and they took Paul, and drew him out of the temple: and forthwith the doors were shut

So note the people back then had noticed Paul's attempts at trying to dis-regard the law! And as we see, this is why the Jew's disliked him because Paul had made the law into nothing, and made it useless with his own new doctrine. So it is quite obvious to all that Paul came and destroyed Judaism at the time and completely ripped the Jewish law into pieces turning it into nothing but a useless piece of paper with ink on it!

And Allah Knows Best
