Does it seem strange that most of the New Testament, following the Book of Acts, was written by Paul, and not by Peter?
Did you ever wonder why, after Peter initiated the preaching of the gospel to the Gentiles at the house of Cornelius, Acts 10 and 11, he and others of the twelve Apostles suddenly vanish from view?
And why only Peter and John reappear, for a fleeting moment, in Jerusalem at the inspired conference recorded in Acts 15?
You read, after Acts 15, only of Paul’s ministry to the Gentiles. Why? What happened to the twelve apostles?
Jesus Commission Tells
"These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: "Go nowhere among the Gentiles… it was a Gentile church in Rome… But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." Matthew 10:5-6.
To whom did Peter address his letters? Here it is: "Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ. To the exiles in the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bioethics." (Britain) 1st Pet 1:1. These were not Gentiles!
Peter was not the Apostle to the Gentiles. Galatians 2:8. Paul was. Peter was chief apostle to the lost sheep of the House of Israel. It was PAUL who went to the Gentiles.
PETER NOT BURIED IN ROME!
There is a reason the Vatican was hesitant to claim the Apostle Peter’s tomb had been found! They know that it is Simon Magus, the false ‘peter’ (soothsayer and magician) mentioned in scripture who is buried there, not Simon Peter the Apostle.
Here is what happened. In the year 656 Pope Vitalian decided the Catholic Church was not interested in the remains of the Apostles Peter and Paul, both had been executed there. The Pope, therefore, ordered them sent to Oswy, king of Britain!
Here is part of his letter to the British king: "however, we have ordered the blessed gifts of the holy martyrs, that is, the relics of the blessed Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of the holy martyrs Laurentius, John, and Paul and Gregory and Pancratius, to be delivered to the bearers of these our letters, to be delivered to you"- (Bedes “Ecclesiastical History”, bk. III, ch. 29).
Could anything be more astounding? The bones of Peter and Paul (termed “relics” in the Pope’s letter) sent by the Pope from Rome to Britain – to a land populated by descendants of Israel!
About a century and a half earlier Constantius of Lyons took the relics of all the Apostles and martyrs from Gaul and buried them in a special tomb at ST ALBANS IN BRITAIN.- Life of St. Germanus. Is it significant that the work of God and God’s College in our generation in Britain was in St. Albans?
Librarian’s Comment: I have visited the burial site of the Apostles in St. Albans where large numbers of visitors quietly file through, paying their respects to those real heroes of the Bible.
These men are soon to receive their reward in the first resurrection at Christ’s return bringing World Peace by the destruction of ALL military forces including the disarmament of ALL remaining Nuclear devices.
Then will the scripture be fulfilled "They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore!" Isaiah 2:4. English Standard Version.
