Was Paul a Roman, a Jew, or Egyptian?
Paul is another man thought to be a Gentile because he taught the Gentiles (Europeans). However, the scriptures certainly tell us otherwise primarily that Paul himself was part of the children of Israel.
Specifically, Paul came from the family of Benjamin, one of the twelve sons of Jacob (Israel). This is read clearly in the book of Romans chapter eleven and verses one. However, Paul being a Hebrew Israelite was still mistaken for an Egyptian.
37And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek?
38Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?
Paul was in some trouble and he was attempting to talk his way out of it to one of the Roman or Greek guards. The guard asked Paul if he could speak the Greek language.
He then asks Paul if he was the crazy Egyptian who made an uproar leading four hundred murderers out to the wilderness. The color aspect is that Paul was mistaken for an Egyptian, as Moses passed for an Egyptian and even Jesus and His family.
Paul in other scriptures said he was a Roman, nevertheless, that only refers to his citizenship because Paul already has told us where he’s from and the precise tribe within Israel.
