The most important event in your Bible happened on the road to Damascus. Saul of Tarsus, the leader of the rebellion against God, was arrested by Jesus Christ and given a commission to go to the Gentiles. Considering that God had not spoken to the Gentiles for 1000’s of years this was a monumental event. Why did God have to save Saul of Tarsus? After all, he had 12 perfectly good apostles that were trained at the feet of Jesus Christ himself. The most important question that Christians can ask themselves today is Why Paul? The messages below answer that question.
