      Examples exist where he received Jesus information from them. After all,…
      • …Paul received a ton from Peter during his Gal 1:18 visit[?]
      • …Paul received Jesus info from them via group memories (“traditions”)
         • …Paul relays “received” creedal statements that they formulated on Jesus[?]
           • …the 1 Cor 7:10 creed Paul relays originated from Jerusalem.
           • …the 1 Cor 11:23-25 creed Paul relays originated from Jerusalem.
           • …the 1 Cor 15:3-7 creed Paul relays originated from Jerusalem.

      • …examples abound…
         • …on history. [Forthcoming]
         • …on doctrine/theology. [Forthcoming]
      This is relevant because it’s not a coincidence. (Paul was in contact with the church and it’s the most plausible source from which Paul would accept such information.)

      • Paul saw the Jerusalem church as experts on Jesus biography. [Forthcoming]
      • Their knowledge was easily accessible to him. [Forthcoming]
