From Saul To Paul
There was a man from Tarsus, a man named Saul.
A Roman Jew, who was zealous for Jewish law.
A Jewish Roman Pharisee, who hadn’t yet discovered Christ Clarity.
The news of Jesus and the Gospel had spread.
Some thinking Christ resurrection was false, some thinking he was still dead.
The news of His resurrection causing a controversy.
Among the members of the Jewish clergy.
The first Christian who was stoned was Stephan the disciple.
The first stone was thrown by Saul the spiteful.
The High Priest gave Saul written permission.
To go bound and persecute Christians.
He traveled to Damascus and saw a light.
A light that was very very bright
He then heard a voice, looked up and fell in fear.
Because Jesus the Son of God's voice, he did hear.
Jesus then asked Saul, why Saul persecuted him.
Then Saul’s eye sight started to dim.
Jesus took away Saul’s eyesight.
And Saul couldn’t even see daylight.
Saul of Tarsus couldn’t even glance.
But Jesus was merciful and gave him a second chance.
He sent Saul to Annias’ house, there Saul’s eyesight would be restored.
He then became Apostle Paul and served Jesus Christ the Lord.
