Clete on Paul's distinct gospel

I thought this was good.

In a discussion of whether Paul and the Twelve were on the same page.

Where's the need for Paul to go to Jerusalem to explain to the Twelve "his gospel" if it was identical to theirs?

Where's the need for Paul's ministry to exist in the first place if "his gospel" was identical to that preached by Jesus and the Twelve?

The fact that the Jerusalem council occurred at all is proof that Paul's gospel was, in fact, distinct from that which had come before, which not only explains why Paul repeatedly calls it "my gospel" and why he didn't confer with the Twelve and why he received "his gospel" by direct divine revelation and why Paul had to get into Peter's face concerning the gospel and why there was all this contention over the issue of circumcision and etc, etc, etc, etc!

Resting in Him,
