    Some commentators think Paul was referring to himself there. If so it would seem that the only one who had this experience were Paul and John, both apostles. I guess it's possible for someone else to have one. I don't know what purpose God would have for doing so. A lot of these "experiences" that I read of describe things that aren't Biblical which is another reason I tend to doubt them.

    Act 14:19


    Then Jews from Antioch and Iconium came there; and having persuaded the multitudes, they stoned Paul anddragged him out of the city, supposing him to be dead.

    However, when the disciples gathered around him, he rose up and went into the city. And the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.

    If Paul appeared dead...... maybe he had a near death experience himself at that time.... .This might be what he was writing about in 2 Corinthians 12 ???

    I guess all we can do is speculate.

    True.... but some of our speculations could well assist somebody to decide to go to church and make their peace with their Creator in the best way that they can figure out how to do?
