This week, we picked up where we left off with Saul (a.k.a. Paul). We examined his background, education, and training. We discussed his “status” as self-appointed protector of Pharisaic Orthodoxy, and his insatiable desire to crush “The Way” wherever he traveled.
As we developed a clear picture of Saul’s character, we saw that he was working very hard to keep the Law and establish himself as a leader in the religious community by ridding the world of Jesus’ followers. This will be important to remember when we study his experience on the road to Damascus and how his understanding of “salvation” was completely transformed.
