Paul is the Apostle for the Gentiles. Paul was given the Gospel by revelation of Jesus Christ after His resurrection. Our Gospel for us which is from Paul only, is the Gospel of Grace. This was a mystery and was never revealed before to anyone.
We in this Dispensation of the Grace of God is called the Mystery and is found in the writings of the Apostle Paul in Romans through Philemon in the New Testament. The Gospel of Grace is, Jesus Christ died and shed His blood on Calvary's Cross, was buried and rose again after three days and three nights according to the scriptures. Jesus paid for out past, present and future sins with his blood. Jesus took our place on that cross and paid our sin debt for us and did all the work needed to be done to save mankind.
To be saved we must believe that Jesus is God the Son and trust His blood alone to save us from hell. We cannot trust in anything else that we could do to be saved,
During Jesus earthly ministry He primarily dealt with the Jews which were His chosen people. Jesus came to be the Messiah for the jews and to set up the earthly kingdom as their King. The jews had to be baptized, follow the law, and believe Jesus was their Messaih to be saved.
The main thing to understand is that Jesus and the twelve Apostles preached to the jews only with the Kingdom gospel during that dispensation! Jesus only spoke to two non jews and the twelve (Peter) only spoke to Cornelius and his family. In the New Testament: Matthew until Acts chapter 8 Jesus did not offer grace to the gentiles until The Risen Jesus gave Paul the gospel of grace by revelation.Acts 9-28+Romans-Philemon. REFER TO WEBSITES ON HOME PAGE FOR MORE INFO.
The twelve apostles did not know Jesus was going to rise from the dead so they could not of been preaching the gospel of grace that Paul was given. Most church people are unaware of these two Gospel messages in two different dispensations. God was dealing with the jews with His earthly ministry according to prophesy. The Risen Jesus deals with the world now with the Mystery of the Gospel of Grace He gave to Paul which was known before.
Once you see the two different dispensations clearly then you can see that we are only saved by grace through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast. KJV Eph. 2:8+9. There is no law for us or works to be saved! There is no water baptism for us or tithing like the Jews had to do, now we give differently under grace. We need to understand that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ Galations 2:16 go and read the rest of that verse and all of Romans through Philemon where our Gospel of grace is found!
