Church Persecuted

Saul leads a violent persecution of the young Christian church in Jerusalem. He goes from house to house, dragging men and women off to prison. When believers are found guilty of what is considered to be ‘blasphemy’, Saul calls for them to be stoned to death.

pointer
Saul to Damascus

In 35AD, armed with the Jewish Sanhedrin’s authority to persecute followers of ‘The Way of Salvation’, Saul sets off from Jerusalem to Damascus. Just before reaching Damascus, the risen Lord Jesus appears to Saul – who falls to the ground blinded. He is led by the hand into the city, and spends three days neither eating nor drinking.

pointer
Ananias visits Saul

Ananias – a disciple living in Damascus – has a vision of the Lord Jesus who tells him to go to Saul. Ananias has heard of Saul’s reputation and objects, but the Lord says, “Go! I have chosen Saul for an important work. He must tell about me to those who are not Jews, to kings, and to the people of Israel.”

pointer
Paul in the Desert

After several days, Paul journeys into the neighboring desert area of Arabia Petraea – probably to seek God quietly in prayer about his future. He then returns to Damascus where he preaches the Good News to the Jewish community for three years.
