“Men of Athens, you appear to be a very religious society.
“Travelling through your city looking carefully at your objects of worship I found an inscription with the words: to an unknown god."
“I will tell you of this God that you say you do not know." .
Paul then rose at the table and began to tell them of the real God that they believed to be ‘unknown’. He talked to them saying, “Men of Athens, I will tell you of this God”
Saul, in pursuit of the imprisonment of Christians, set out for Damascus, where he had been given permission by the High Priest to persecute followers of Christ.
On his journey, a bright light shined downed from heaven upon him and brought him to his knees. A loud voice beamed down onto him and asked him "Saul, Saul, why do you prosecute me?" This voice was Jesus who then asked him to go to the city for there was someone who would then tell him what he must do.
Some were humored when told Jesus had been risen from the dead, but others wished to know more, “We want to hear you again on this subject.” At that, Paul left the Council, some of the people there became followers of Paul and believed in Lord.
The Lord then called upon a man named Ananias who was given the task of healing the eyes of Saul. Even with hesitation about the fact that the man he was told to heal was a persecutor of Christians he listened to the Lord and travelled to Damascus. Here he baptised Saul, immediately shedding a layer from his eyes and healing them.
Saul then began - now going by the name Paul - preaching the Gospel of the Lord and spreading the good news. He wrote letters to communities informing them of the teachings of the Gospel.
