2 Timothy 2:8 (Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descendant of David, according to my gospel)
I don't understand. Timothy is simply confirming that Jesus was a Jew who rose from the dead. How is that a fabrication by Paul?
Timothy is confirming nothing. That's a letter from Paul to Timothy and not from Timothy to Paul. This was informing Timothy that Jesus being risen from the dead, and that he was descendant of David, aka, the Messiah, was according to his gospel. It tells me that there was another gospel at the time whose agenda those things about Jesus were not extant. Therefore, a fabrication of Paul's. Things that could not be verified, since Paul was not in tune with the Tanach.
