After reading this book I have a new understanding of the Early Christian faith. Del Tondo clearly demonstrates through extensive research and knowledgeable sources of how the Christian faith was vastly different in the early christian church and how Paul's doctrine was disgarded for the words of JWO. It wasn't until the Government of Rome discovered the potential of ultimate power by combining religion and politics using Paul's words did Christianity change forever. I have been to bible college and grown up in a non-denominational church for 32 years and can plainly see the different and contradictory doctrines that Paul introduced to the world but I never could put my finger on it before because my Pastor always read Jesus's words through Paul's epistles instead of the other way around and then wraped everything up in a nice bowtie with dispensational theology. The one thing that stood out to me from reading JWO was that there was indeed a very large disagreement between Paul and the apostles James and Peter. This is not spoken of in the modern church today for good reason because if more people were focused on that then immediate questions would have to be answered. For one, what were the disagreements about? Who had the ultimate leadership over jews and gentiles and so forth. People are content to not question why Paul never mentions Jesus's words, why didn't Paul study with the disciples after he got saved, why if God told him his ministry was to be ministering to the Gentiles did he immediately go to the Jews and try to witness to them and was rejected? Why did Paul's Demascus conversion testimony change so dramatically in his epistles and for what reason?
The very title of this extraordinary book "Jesus' Words Only" is precisely why I choose to buy it. After my own researchof studying the Torah (5 books of Moses: Genesis- Deuteronomy) and then the prophets of the Old Testament for severalyears then delving into the New Testament with better background, I immediately started to see why we are so dividedas a Church of Yahshua. Paul was arrogant, self-serving, his two witnesses were never named, and the list continued.This book sat on the shelf, unread, for 4 years or more. My question: WHY do we always use Paul's words over Jesus'?Shouldn't it be the other way around? To my thinking...why do we even need the boastful Paul? Sure his words are fluffy,puffy, tickle your ears with warm fuzzies cute sometimes..but our God is not like Paul's God.Once I opened this book up...I've never been able to put it down for long..It is very logical in thought and precise in executionof facts. Del Tondo has more than the two witnesses needed on each topic of analyzing the words of scripture and pointing outour neglect as members of the body of Christ to follow the Words of God in Deut. telling us to TEST anyone claiming to be fromHIM! It is our duty to TEST everything according to the TORAH! Revelation 19:13 even states "his name is The WORD of GOD".Word of God = Torah in hebrew! Dah!Paul's gospel clearly can NOT be found in Jesus' gospel.The fundamental questions the author goes on to answer are:1) When will we finally make a commitment to keeping Jesus' words only?2) What is our Biblical justification for adding Paul to Scripture?3) What fulfilled prophecy did Paul give?
The author of Jesus' Words Only has written a comprehensive review of the two competing gospels in the Bible, that of the Messiah and his Apostles versus that of "Apostle" Paul. A lawyer, he fully documents his case that Paul and his followers are announced in the prophesies of false prophets who test Israel (Deut. 13:3), of Benjamin as a wolf that ravened (Gen. 49:27), and as Balaam who assisted in placing a stumbling block in the way of Israel (Numbers 22-23 and Revelation 2:14). He brings out the striking parallel of Balaam's "Road to Moab Experience" and Paul's "Road to Damascus Experience" that I had not seen before.This author brings to light how Messiah's warning against false prophets and apostles in the Gospels and in Revelation point clearly to Paul. John, in his First and Second Epistles warns against Paul, a man who boasted of NOT getting his gospel from the Apostles, but rather by revelation of Christ in the Arabian desert, which is precisely where Messiah told his followers NOT to look for him (Matthew 24:26).Mr. Del Tondo has not only covered what is in the Bible concerning these competing gospels, but he addresses the record of Church history, bringing to light new evidences that Paul is not who he proclaimed himself to be. He warns that the canon was put together with no Scriptural direction. He documents that Paul provides proof for docetism, the belief rejected by John, and later taught by Marcion, that Messiah only appeared to come in human flesh.Mr. Del Tondo points Christians clearly to the Messiah and the true, everlasting Gospel, a gospel not of faith only, but of faith and works.Many people write of how the apparent contradictions between Paul and the rest of the Bible can be understood.
