...Apostle Paul The life of the Apostle Paul is a fascinating addition to the New Testament. A man who had nothing to do with the life of Christ, nor had any relevance to the centrally important story of the resurrection, has had his writings included in a book that has the strongest influence in the world for a literary work on the structure of the Christian religion.

The historical resources that are available about his life start with his persecution of Christians (1). The story of his life is built upon traditions and through scraps of writing that tell the story... Profile of the...
