Who was Paul?
When we first read about Paul, he was a man on a very different type of mission. He was on a mission to persecute Christians and to tell others to ignore the gospel. However, we can read about his conversion in Acts chapter 9:
On the road to Damascus, Saul [later called Paul] was struck by a light and fell to the ground. When Saul asked who was speaking, a voice from heaven replied, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. Get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”
This event left Saul blind. His companions led him into Damascus to a man named Judas. For three days, Saul didn’t eat or drink. Meanwhile, Jesus appeared in a vision to a disciple named Ananias and told him to go to Saul. Ananias was afraid because he knew Saul’s reputation as a dangerous persecutor of Christians. Jesus explained that Saul was chosen to deliver the Gospel, and He said, “Go, for Saul is a chosen instrument of Mine, to bear My name before the Gentiles and kings and the sons of Israel.”
Ananias obeyed, and he found Saul praying at the house of Judas. Ananias laid his hands on him saying, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road by which you were coming, has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” Something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized. Saul immediately began proclaiming Jesus in the synagogues saying, “Jesus is the Son of God!”
What happened on Paul’s Missionary Journeys?
After his conversion, Paul continued teaching the good news. We read about the missionary journeys of Paul in Acts 13-21. Despite the extremely difficult circumstances that Paul often faced on his preaching trips, he was successful in spreading the gospel of Jesus. On his journeys, Paul traveled thousands of miles, teaching both Jews and Gentiles.
