15 Facts about the Apostle Paul & Brief About His Conversion

The Conversion of Paul

“The life and words of Saint Paul are filled with irony and contradiction. He was a devout Jew who believed strongly in his faith and consequently persecuted the early Christians, participating even in the stoning of Stephen (Acts 7:58 says that the men stoning Stephen laid their coats at his feet). On the road to Damascus his conversion experience began with him being cast to the ground and thrown into what can perhaps best be described as a delirium. He was blinded and heard a voice saying “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting…. Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” (Acts 9) The rest of the Book of Acts and the letters of Paul might be described as recounting the effects of this experience and how it led him to a lifetime of conversion. It wasn’t that Paul was converted suddenly and then became a fully formed Christian, but rather that this experience led him to struggle for the rest of his life with what his faith required of him. The apostles were justifiably dubious about his conversion and he disputed with them for the rest of his life on a variety of issues. Read the Acts of the Apostles and the epistles to gain a better understanding of Paul’s ongoing conversion to Christianity. He was a disciple who took up his cross daily.”– Christopher Simon
There is a new movie coming out March 23, Paul, Apostle of Christ. I hope to try to review this movie and share that review on this blog.

  1. Paul was a humble man as he considered himself the “chiefest of sinners” (1 Timothy 1) as he persecuted the Church of Christ.

  2. As you pointed out, Paul was one of the greatest, most godly and accomplished Christians / followers of Yahweh and his sonJesus Christ in all of human history, but he did NOT write most of the New Testament. In fact, by word count, he only wrote 28% or just over a quarter of the New Testament.
