  • Other than Jesus, woud be Paul. The trials and sufferings he went through, wow.....and yet he stayed the course...

  • Mary, her life couldnt have been easy, especially if she knew all along that Jesus was going to die.

    and Peter & James cause it must have been hard to watch someone else come in and disagree & teach against so much of what Jesus told you Christianity should be.

  • Mary magdalene because unlike the male disciples, who fled in fear, she stayed til the end and she was the first person Jesus appeared to when he rose. Not a man, not a disciple, but a woman. Seems like jesus did everything he possibly could to elevate women and put them in equal standing with men. And we have paul to thank for subverting that effort.

  • I would have to say my favorite is St. Paul. He was such a soldier, and brilliant! I love reading what he wrote. I almost feel as though I know him. I wonder what he might have to say to me if I met him. It might be hard to hear, but it would be worth hearing.
