it does not make sense to me that the Buddha would have taught different 'paths'. There is only one Path, and we all know what that is. I might still be, relatively speaking, a neophyte in this Dhamma & Discipline, but the more I study and practice it, the more I perceive a fundamental unity throughout all the various 'teachings' the Buddha gave.
So I don't see why you have to 'choose' between any of the above mentioned. Do them all; they all fall under the umbrella of the Noble Eightfold Path.
The Satipatthana sutta explains samma sati
Jhana is samma samadhi
(it should be undertaken with the correct motivation, however); and
The precepts cover samma vaca, samma kammanta and samma ajiva
(unless I'm mistaken).
All that is left then, is samma ditthi, samma sankappa
and samma vayama.
Which, since you are studying the suttas, you would be increasingly familiar with as well.
Just keep refining the entire Path, that's what we all need to do. In particular, strive to enter into right view (that's what I'm trying to do also).
