Saul/Paul: Saul is the Jewish name, after famous Benjamite King Sual Paul is the latin name used outside Jewish Community…. Amoung CHristians Paul’s Damascus Road Experience: Paul goes to persecute Christians and ends up being converted and then is used as an instrument to convert others Dramatic transformation Bright light …. God said “why do you persecute me”….he is blind for the rest of the trip , must be led, and then when he gets to the city he regains his sight and becomes a believer First Missionary Journey: Paul and Barnabas added significantly to the number of non-jews within Christianity They went to many places including Cypress and Asia Minor Situation created a problem: Do non-jews who convert to Christianity also have to become Jewish and follow the law? The journey was a loop Jewish law as Paidagogos: Galatians 3:23-25 – the law that guided them before Christ came is no longer important, because the law is compared to a “disciplinarian,” or a paidagogos, which is only a temporary role Also a disciplinarian …. Purpose of the law is too guide us…. Also comes to an end Christ is the end of the law: Christians at Antioch, including Paul and Barnabas said that non-jews did not have to first become Jewish before becoming chrisitians and that they did NOT have to follow Jewish law They said that Christ was the end of the law Leads to separation between Judiasm and Christianity
