There was a man with a mission. His name was Saul. He was a zealous scribe. He breathed out murderous threats against anyone who did not follow Jewish law. He had them dragged to prison and executed. Saul destroyed the community of the followers of Jesus. Jesus, this so-called Son of God! Saul had no intention of stopping the persecution of Jesus’ followers. He wanted to go to Damascus to have the believers there imprisoned and brought to Jerusalem.
