    There are many considerations. I think one is the introduction of Greek philosophy as a compare and contrast with Abrahamic. There are others for sure.

    I continue to tell ALL when studying Scripture one must do so “in the Spirit!”  The Scriptures are written in allegories, metaphors, illustrations, examples, etc. and unless one studies “in the Spirit,” one will NEVER understand (Jn 4:23-24)!   This is where the world falls short and “religion” does not teach! 
    I’m sure many will have their opinion regarding “The Biggest Impact St. Paul Had On Christianity,” but the TRUTH of the METAPHOR is JESUS showed us how He uses the “WORST” of us to accomplish “HIS WILL” and showed us how we should do so - with an “humble” spirit giving Him ALL the glory!   Did Paul not say in both Eph 3:8 and I Cor 15:9 that he was “…the least of the apostles and prophets; in that he persecuted the Church of God?”  We know he killed Christians as “religion” does today by not telling TRUTH in His Word! 
    Saints, I beg of you, don’t let “religion” deceive you - “STUDY!”
    Religion would have you believe that Paul was not Jesus!  Crazy, huh?  Not if you are studying Scripture “in the Spirit” and not “literally!”  Just because It was a different body doesn’t mean It was not the SAME SPIRIT!  It was “inspired by God” Who is JESUS (II Tim 3:16; Eph 4:4-6)!  Did not Jesus say in Jer 31:31; Heb 8:10;10:16 that under the New Covenant, He would “put His laws into their hearts, and write them in their mind?”  Did JESUS not “Promise” a Comforter (“…IN HIS NAME…”) to do this in Jn 14:26 & 16:13?  Did the Comforter (Holy Spirit/JESUS) not come in Acts 2:2 and began to do this?  Well, if Jesus said He would “put His laws into their hearts, and write them in their mind” and the Holy Spirit (JESUS) came and began doing this, don’t you know it was JESUS telling Paul what to write?  Did II Tim 3:16 not say “All Scripture is inspired by God (JESUS)?  If “inspired by God,” is it not JESUS (Eph 4:4-6)?  You would ONLY know this if studying Scripture “in the Spirit!”  Come on Saints, “I would not have you ignorant concerning the mystery that has been hidden from the ages,” (Col 1:26)!
    Therefore, It was Paul (JESUS) who wrote Scripture after the Day of Pentecost telling us what we MUST do for salvation!  As Gal 1:6-9 says “If ANY other gospel is preached, LET HIM BE ACCURSED!”   Do you want to be in that number that is “ACCURSED by pleasing men (oneself) rather than God?” (Gal 1:10)!

    Therefore, Paul's "Biggest Impact on Christanity" was his continuation (via the Holy Spirit/Jesus) of the "gospel of Christ" AFTER THE CROSS!  Jesus told him what to tell us we MUST do for salvation or LET HIM BE ACCURSED!  Or did Christ die in vain (Gal 2:21)?

    The biggest impact Paul did was the whole trinity idea...
    No offense!

      SG: No farther statement from "truth!" Col 2:9 says "For in him (Jesus Christ) dwelleth ALL the fullness of the Godhead bodily."  ALL are ONE according to PAUL!
