RABBI SHA’UL (PAUL) WAS A “TENT MAKER”

RABBI SHA’UL (PAUL) WAS A “TENT MAKER”

Christians often assume that after Rabbi Sha’ul ( referred to as “Paul” which means “short one” or “shorty” in Englisha derogatory gentile nickname which he accepted) became a believer in the Messiah, he renounced the synagogue and broke away from his Hebrew religious roots. However, the Scriptures clearly show the opposite. For example, when Rabbi Sha’ul (Paul) spoke of his profession as a “tent maker”, the Hebrews to whom he was speaking understood without question that he meant, he was a maker of the talit (the spiritual tent) with the tzitzit on it’s four corners (Acts 18:3). Even today, there are craftsmen who specialize in the making of the talit. It is amazing to consider the volume of sermons that have been preached by ministers on this topic who had no idea of the real meaning of the text. This detail is the kind of material that a minister should have been taught during his seminary training, but it is unfortunately avoided.
