A Short History of Giving

Referring to Galilee where he came from and his main or first apostles, very poor land and away from the center of Jewish power in Palestine, where the main livelihood activity was fishing. This is the main reason why Paul has sought to detract to scroll through the cross, not only because the cross was the symbol that best quadrant a with its design but also as a direct reference to Galilee could become a constraint, for being too parochial, to the aspirations of universality a I entertained for his fledgling church. 2.
