Paul the Successor of Peter as Bishop of Rome?

Something else to consider ...

The Linus named after Peter as the second Bishop of Rome (in the list of Irenaeus) may not have been the Linus referred to in 2 Timothy 4:21, but Paulinus (Paul/Saul) himself. If so, then Paul lived at least until 70 AD, that is, he survived the year (69 AD) of the four emperors and the death of Peter in 70 AD.
