Follow in the Footsteps of St. Paul

Follow in the Footsteps of St. Paul Pilgrimages

Also known as Paul the Apostle, St. Paul is one of the greatest writers and teachers of God’s word in the history of Christianity. The Irony is, he used to persecute Christians. St. Paul was called Saul or Sh’aul, and was born to Roman Parents in Tarsus town Cicilia. He attended Bible School in Jerusalem from an early age, then studied under a famous rabbi, and became an expert of the law. St. Paul became famous and he worked with the Jewish authorities who had him actively pursue and persecute members of a news sect that confessed Jesus Christ of Nazareth was the messiah. The sect also proclaimed that God’s kingdom was at hand. It is on one such trip to persecute this sect on the road to Damascus that St. Paul had a supernatural encounter and was converted to the same Christian sect he was persecuting! Paul was struck blind and was to fast for three days. He regained his sight after a Christian, Ananias prayed for him. He then got baptized. St. Paul is credited with writing 13 out of the 27 books in the New Testament.
