When Paul entered Adulthood he became a Pharisee. Later he had an encounter with Jesus in his adulthood, his named changed from Saul to Paul. When he converted to christianity he preached to gentiles and he wrote letters.

Paul the Apostle died in 64 AD in Rome

Paul the Apostle went on 3 missions after he converted to Christianity. He decided to go on these missions so he could preach to more Gentiles.

He preached to the Gentiles in:

  • Rome
  • Asia minor
  • Greece
  • Cyprus
  • Galatia
  • Antioch
  • Jerusalem
  • Possibly Spain and Illyricum
Paul the Apostle was the second founder of the Christian Movement. He also helped the development of Christian Theology. He inspired Christian thinkers as well.
Paul also wrote: Romans, Galatians, Philippians, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, 1 Thessalonians, Philemon.
"But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother's womb and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood." - Galatians 1:15-16
When Paul was a Pharisee he was known for persecuting the church. Then one day on his way to Damascus he got stopped by a huge glorious light. The light was Jesus. He was telling him he needs to spread the gospel instead of persecuting the church and Jesus. Paul decided to do what Jesus told him straight after he met with Ananias. Ananias was the man Jesus told Paul to met.He continued his life sharing the gospel. One day he got arrested for his belief and got released, but later died.
