“Saul is on a road trip to Damascus. He’s getting close. He wants to defend God’s name against the new movement that was saying that Jesus was truly sent from God and God raised Him from the dead.

Saul thought they were wrong on both counts: He thought that Jesus wasn’t sent from God and that God hadn’t raised Him the dead. And then the same Jesus he thought was dead – the one who had been crucified for the crime of blasphemy against God – appeared to him and addressed him by name! ‘Saul! Saul!’

It made Saul pay attention. It made him start to rethink everything he thought was true about Jesus. Maybe he’d gotten it wrong.
Maybe Jesus really was who He said He was.”
