Fourteen years ago

Those who heard the gospel reading last Sunday recognize that the first verse of the reading includes this phrase. The reading includes the statement that appears to suggest that Paul is speaking about a person, not himself, who was caught up to the third heaven. Paul emphatically states that he will not boast about himself. Yet the commentators appear to agree that Paul was in fact describing his personal experience.

Since this is Opposite Blog Week, I can ask, Why is it we assume that Paul was speaking about himself?
