How did Paul know?
A verse that I often fall back on in times of trouble is that bit of Romans 8 which tells us that the Spirit prays for us when we can't. Later night I began to wonder, how can Paul make this claim? Or all the other bits where he goes beyond the revelation of the Old Covenant? I'm not disagreeing with him, and I accept his statements as Scripture, but how did he know? He can't have got it all on the Damascus road, can he?
