I believe that I can say this without equivocation. See if by the end of this PODCAST, you agree with me.
My unequivocal observation? He is the single-most important person in the New Testament of whom you have never heard.
There is an overarching theme to this discussion, born out of this story. One that relates directly to something that Jesus said.
You talk about Paint the picture, Rabbi. This story here in Acts 9 paints THIS amazing picture.
Jesus said, “But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.” That was in Matthew 19.
So important is this principle that Jesus repeated it in the very next chapter:
“So those who are last now will be first then, and those who are first will be last.”
Whatever did Jesus mean? More to the point: What does this look like? Paint the picture, Rabbi.
Fortunately for us, Jesus is about to paint this picture—as beautiful a picture as you’d ever want to see—courtesy of Saul here in Acts 9, as illustrated so wonderfully in the lives of two otherwise anonymous individuals.
