Faith leads us to conclude that Jesus Christ had other plans for Paul and his ministry; Jesus Christ had a new message, a new program, to reveal to Paul, a program and a set of doctrines that Peter knew nothing of until he learned of it in Galatians chapter 2, when Paul told him in person.

He wrote that faith in Christ was alone decisive in salvation for Jews and Gentiles alike, making the schism between the followers of Christ and mainstream Jews inevitable and permanent.
