Acts 22:17-21, Galatians 1:17-24
Paul was a very interesting and important person in the Bible. Before he was a missionary for Jesus, he was known as Saul. After he sees the blinding light and heard the voice of Jesus, he changed his ways of living and began to believe and teach other about Christ. He was known as one of the greatest missionaries of his time. When Paul was in Damascus, the Jews heard him praying with the disciples. This angered them and they wanted to kill Paul. The Jews set guards by every high wall around the city and Paul wasn’t sure how he would escape. His friends, who he knew believed in God, came to his rescue and lowered him over the high wall in a large wicker basket. From there, Paul found safety with other believers.
