Acts 9:19b-30 ~ Wired with Wanderlust

This week we worked on piecing together the evolution of Saul’s theology based on the account we have in Acts as well as his own testimony in Galatians. The more we reflected on the details of Saul’s life leading up to this moment, the more we saw how God had wired him with a passion for travel and a zeal for sharing what he’d learned with others—and he was like that since he was a child! Saul desperately wanted people to know the truth as he understood it, and being filled with the Holy Spirit, his eyes were opened to a more complete understanding of the Scriptures he’d studied his entire life.
