In Acts 9, we begin an intentional shift towards the story of Paul and his life. This is not because Paul is the most important New Testament character, but because our author, Luke, as we will find out later spent years traveling with him and is an eye-witness to many of the things later in the book.

  • Story Begins to shift toward Saul (Paul)
  • Saul’s conversion
  • Suffer for My name?

It is the foundation for our faith, in that it tells us of the transitional period from when Jesus taught a Jewish audience to the time when Gentiles were openly welcomed as part of the people of God. As we will see in chapters 1-2, God is going to begin to radically move and transform His chosen people in dramatic ways.
