Paul, the Pattern -- His Conversion

No conversion in history is given so much attention as that of the Apostle Paul. Besides the many references to it, we find three detailed accounts of it in the book of Acts. As Saul of Tarsus, the learned Pharisee, he had led his nation and the world in rebellion against God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Luke wrote: “As for Saul, he made havock of the church” (Acts 8:3).

The believers at Damascus feared Saul’s presence among them, saying: “Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem?” (Acts 9:21).
