"The recording of the Kingdom of God's early expansion continues in the book of Acts with a new soon-to-be apostle named Saul. Saul was directly confronted by the risen Jesus on the road to Damascus. Originally from Tarsus, Saul had trained to become a Pharisee in Jerusalem, a strict party within first century Judaism. What made Saul an unlikely choice was
that he firmly believed that the right way to handle followers of Jesus was to beat, arrest, even kill those who would not renounce Him. In fact, the reason Saul was headed to Damascus was to continue this mission. “Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?’ And he said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ Then the Lord
said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting’” (ACTS 9:4-5). This began Saul’s dramatic about-face. Over the next few years, Saul would grow in the LORD, begin going by the name Paul, and then eventually become one of the main missionaries of early Christianity.
