the Call

Trip to Damascus - 150 miles, 5 to 6 days travel
- Saul approves of the execution

“Anyone who kills you will think that he is offering a service to God” (John 16:2)

Saul saw Jesus, how does he go on to persecute the church? He has seen and knows that indeed Jesus has risen.
Brokenness, helplessness
the radiance of Christ blinded Saul

Responding to the Call

v. 15 – chosen (Not speaking of election but of office)
v.15 – Gentiles – Epistles repeatedly say he was the apostle to the gentiles, Kings and people of Israel - King Agrippa (), Steps of the Roman barracks in Jerusalem speak to the Jews
v. 16 – endure hardships ( Struggle)
Stress – Persecutor of the church to persecuted
