James and other disciples at Jerusalem summoned Paul at Jerusalem; but sensing what was going to happen there; Paul never went there to meet them at Jerusalem

You correctly note that many who call themselves Christians are enamored with the teachings of Paul. The Bible describes Paul, not as one of the original Disciples of Christ, but as a self-proclaimed disciple, reportedly converted by a vision as he traveled on the road to Damascus.

Paul’s understanding of Greek culture and language enabled him to preach his understanding of the teachings of Jesus to Greek speaking populations (Gentiles). He traveled far and wide and his preaching was received by many. The Bible tells how Paul first sought the approval of James and the Christian church in Jerusalem before embarking on his travels. Their approval granted Paul an authenticity he would have otherwise lacked.

Like cunning people he would promise but did not do it. Paul was a self proclaimed disciple and he remained as such. Jesus was at that time in India and was unaware of the wrongs being done by Paul at Rome.

I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran.

Thanks
