Historical Evidence for the Life of Paul

Paul of Tarsus was one of the most zealous persecutors of the Christians shortly after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:5-6).

When some people were furious at a Christian man, Paul held the coats of those people while they stoned the man to death (Acts 8:1). Yet Jesus Christ appeared to Paul (Acts 9:4-6) and told Paul that he would now be God’s chosen instrument to share the Good News about Jesus with the Gentiles all over the world (Acts 9:15-16).

Background Study on the book of Philemon

A couple years ago I wrote a series of blog posts about the Apostle Paul and how he displayed specific leadership characteristics in the book of Philemon. However, looking back on those posts now, I do not believe that I provided adequate background information on the Apostle Paul. Because of that, some of the leadership principles might have been missed.
