    • The witnesses laid their garments at the feet of a young man named Saul….Saul approved of their killing him. On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him. But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off both men and women and put them in prison. -Acts 7:58, 8:1-3 (NIV)

    • Michelangelo – The Conversion of Saint Paul (1542-5)
    • Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him….
    • He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”     “ Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.     “ I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do….” -Acts 9:1-6 (NIV)
    • He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”     “ Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.     “ I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do….” The Lord said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel.” -Acts 9:1-6, 19 (NIV)

    • Raphael – St. Paul Preaching in Athens (1515)
    • While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off. The two of them, sent on their way by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia and sailed from there to Cyprus. When they arrived at Salamis, they proclaimed the word of God in the Jewish synagogues. John was with them as their helper….
    • From Paphos, Paul and his companions sailed to Perga in Pamphylia, where John left them to return to Jerusalem. From Perga they went on to Pisidion Antioch… -Acts 13:2-5 (NIV)
    • On the next Sabbath almost the whole city gathered to hear the word of the Lord. When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and talked abusively against what Paul was saying. Then Paul and Barnabas answered them boldly…. -Acts 13: 13-14 (NIV)
    • “ We had to speak the word of God to you first. Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we now turn to the Gentiles. For this is what the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’” When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed to eternal life believed. -Acts 13:44-48 (NIV)
    •  
    • Valentin de Boulogne– St. Paul Writing His Epistles (1620)
    • Yet I have written you quite boldly on some points to remind you of them again, because of the grace God gave me 16 to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles. He gave me the priestly duty of proclaiming the gospel of God, so that the Gentiles might become an offering acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit….It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else's foundation.” -Romans 15:15-16, 20 (NIV)   (Colossae) “I have become (the church’s) servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness—the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Col. 1:27) -Acts 9:1-6, 19 (NIV)
    • I have become (the church’s) servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness—the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. -Colossians 1:27 (NIV)
