St. Paul kidnapped

I think a major problem is that people read the writings of St. Paul as the writings of St. Paul.

They are not his writings. They are from the Holy Ghost. Also, all of his writings are letters and written to a specific target as well as for everyone. Understanding who first read them helps understand the focus. St. Paul and all the apostles spent their time traveling and teaching. The letters are a very small part of what they did and they supplemented what was taught. St. Paul was writing to real people who he had visited about teachings they were already taught.

It is clear that the writings of St. Paul deal with subjects in more detail that scripture generally does not, that is good, but it makes it easy for many to forget that what he wrote was not knew. It was implicit (at least) in the words of Jesus.
