The stumbling block for Jews is Messiah’s first arrival,
The stumbling block for Gentiles is Paul and the Bible.
His letters cleverly reveal your inner heart’s condition
By how you interpret all the ambiguity within them.
If you respect Yahweh’s Law then Paul’s a confirmation,
If you don’t, it’s like he starts a brand new conversation.
But if you quote Paul’s words before the Messiah’s
And before the Creator’s, who are you holding highest?
A tribute to the Messiah’s most misunderstood apostle.
~Poet of Ephraim
