    -- Howard Culbertson,


The Apostle Paul, originally known as Saul of Tarsus, is one of the most influential figures in Christianity. Born a Jew, he fervently opposed the early Christian movement until a dramatic conversion experience on the road to Damascus changed the course of his life. From then on, Paul became a passionate advocate for Jesus Christ, traveling extensively throughout the Mediterranean region to spread the gospel. His letters, which comprise a significant portion of the New Testament, are cherished by believers for their theological depth and practical guidance. Paul's teachings on grace, faith, and the unity of believers continue to shape Christian theology and practice to this day, cementing his legacy as a towering figure in the history of Christianity.
