Paul did appreciate the Hellenistic lifestyle, and had a sympathetic understanding of the pressures faced by those who became Christians from this background. 3. What trade did Paul learn and practice? Alongside his studies in Jewish Law, children were also expected to have a practical trade as well as their studies.
