As a christian, I’ve been using the Bible as my guidance for life. I want to make sure my thoughts, beliefs, and actions line up with God’s words. So one night, when Jesus appeared to me and gave me the vision to continue my journey on women empowerment, I was ecstatic with joy and peace and clarity.

How to Become Wise?
“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;”
Proverbs 2:6 ESV
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
Proverbs 1:7 ESV
“he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;”
Proverbs 2:7–10 ESV

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jerimaiah 29:11
I’m not afraid of the thousands of enemies surrounding me because I’m a warrior. I’m equipped. God has shown me the path. I can defeat armies and jump over walls. I’m a warrior!
To answer that question, we need to explore the authors of New Testament first:
There are 27 chapters in the new testament with a total of 12 authors including the unknown one for Hebrews.
Although St. Paul was not one of the original 12 Apostles of Jesus and may not have the word count that Moses has, he was one of the most prolific contributors to the New Testament. Of the 27 books in the New Testament, 13 or 14 are traditionally attributed to Paul. Almost 50%. So the answer is no. But he is definitely most quoted.
