'him' to Jesus.
John 6:39,40 -And
this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath

him up at the last day.

isn't a 'different' gospel, as we know 'different,' but it is more complete.

of grace - through Paul, as the risen Jesus Christ taught to Paul personally.
The word 'perfect' can be

When we let the Scriptures define words, we see that perfect

Jesus' will of 'it' and 'him' passed on to Paul,

Colossians 1:12,13 - Giving
thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the

of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
More excellent way!

I Corinthians 4:17:
For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and

Paul's ways show you to the God of peace!
Acts 16:17: The
same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants
of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
Paul's ways are still in Christ

Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and
seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
Exhort by the Lord Jesus
...but they are the teachings of the Risen Christ
to the Gentiles, not the Gospel Christ's teachings to the Jews.
I Corinthians 4:17 - For
this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful

then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as
ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would
abound more and more.
