Biblestudy: Acts (Part Ten)
Acts 9 Paul's Dramatic Conversion
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 18-Nov-88; 89 minutes
The martyrdom of Stephen, largely instigated by Hellenistic Jews, actually had the paradoxical effect of spreading the Gospel into Gentile venues, enabling individuals like Cornelius and the Ethiopian Eunuch, upon repentance, belief, and baptism, to be added to the fellowship. Even more remarkable in this section of Acts was the dramatic conversion of the zealous learned Pharisee Saul (virtually handpicked by Jesus Christ and rigorously trained in Arabia for three years) into Paul the Apostle, fashioned (his intense zeal redirected or refocused) for great accomplishment as well as great suffering. Like Jeremiah and John the Baptist, the Apostle Paul was sanctified in his mother's womb, set apart for a specific purpose. At the conclusion of the chapter we find the account of the resurrection of Tabitha (or Dorcas) following Peter's fervent prayer.
