The real apostles and Jews rejects Pauls heresy - The False Prophets

Below you will see that James (the brother of Jesus) and the other elders had heard that Paul is teaching people not to follow the Law of Moses.  11

“On the following day Paul went in with us to James; and all the elders were present.” Acts 21:18 RSV
“and they have been told about you that you teach all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children or observe the customs.” Acts 21:21 RSV

They instruct Paul to repent by purifying himself, so all will know that he is one who does observes the Law of Moses.

“Do therefore what we tell you. We have four men who are under a vow;” Acts 21:23 RSV
“Them take, and purify thyself with them, and be at charges with them, that they may shave their heads: and all may know that those things, whereof they were informed concerning thee, are nothing; but that thou thyself also walkest orderly, and keepest the law.” Acts 21:24 KJV

James and the elders had sent a letter to the recently converted correcting their beliefs and making them observant of the Law of Moses:
“But as for the Gentiles who have believed, we have sent a letter with our judgment that they should abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols and from blood and from what is strangled and from unchastity.” Acts 21:25 RSV
Then Paul took the men, and the next day purifying himself with them entered into the temple …” Acts 21:26 KJV
“… the Jews which were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on him Acts 21:27 KJV

”Shouting, ‘Fellow Israelites, help us! This is the man who teaches everyone everywhere against our people and our law and this place. And besides, he has brought Greeks into the temple and defiled this holy place.’” Acts 21:28 NIV

“The whole city was aroused (stirred up), and the people came running from all directions. Seizing Paul, they dragged him from the temple, and immediately the gates were shut.Acts 21:30 NIV

The above verses shows that Paul is thrown out of the temple for his blasphemy and his false teachings. In those days any false teacher / prophet must be put to death according to Deuteronomy 13:1-5.

“While they were trying to kill him, news reached the commander of the Roman troops that the whole city of Jerusalem was in an uproar.”
“The commander came up and arrested him and ordered him to be bound with two chains.”  Acts 21:31-32 NIV

“Paul answered, ‘I am a Jew, from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no ordinary city. Please let me speak to the people.’” Acts 21:39 NIV
The soldiers let Paul speak to the people, this is found in In Acts 22. Paul then tells of his vision of Jesus and his conversion story. The Jewish people revolted against his blasphemy.
“Then they raised their voices and shouted, ‘Rid the earth of him! He’s not fit to live!’Acts 22:22 NIV

“the commander ordered that Paul be taken into the barracks. He directed that he be flogged and interrogated in order to find out why the people were shouting at him like this.”
“As they stretched him out to flog him, Paul said to the centurion standing there, ‘Is it legal for you to flog a Roman citizen who hasn’t even been found guilty?’” Acts 22:24-25 NIV

“The commander went to Paul and asked, ‘Tell me, are you a Roman citizen?’”
“’Yes, I am,’ he answered.” Acts 22:27-28 NIV

Suspiciously enough we now find out Paul is a Roman citizen. The Jews below make an oath to kill the blasphemer Paul. 12

“And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse (oath) , saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.”
“And they were more than forty which had made this conspiracy.” Acts 23:12-13 KJV
“And they went to the chief priests and elders, and said, ‘We have strictly bound ourselves by an oath to taste no food till we have killed Paul.’” Acts 24:14 NIV
The Chief Captain “… called two of the centurions and said, -At the third hour of the night get ready twohundred soldiers with seventy horsemen and two hundred spearmen to go as far as Caesare′a. “
Also provide mounts for Paul to ride, and bring him safely to Felix the governor.”
“And he wrote a letter to this effect:” Acts 23:23-25
This man was seized by the Jews, and was about to be killed by them, when I came upon them with the soldiers and rescued him, having learned that he was a Roman citizen.” Acts 23:27 NIV
I found that he was accused about questions of their law, but charged with nothing deserving death or imprisonment.” Acts 23:29 NIV
The high priest Ananias, some of the elders and their lawyer Tertullus bring their charges against Paul before Felix:

“For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, an agitator among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes.”
He even tried to profane the temple, but we seized him.”
”By examining him yourself you will be able to learn from him about everything of which we accuse him.”
“The Jews also joined in the charge, affirming that all this was so.” Acts 24:5-9

The verses in this section have highlighted the events that most Christians are not aware of, that Paul was rejected by the real disciples of Jesus. He was considered a false teacher by them.
