THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES

          Welcome back and glad you could visit for another slice of Daily Bread. This chapter of Acts is about the man Saul that I told you to keep an eye out for, because youíd be hearing more about him.

THE CONVERSION OF SAUL TO PAUL

THE CONVERSION OF SAUL TO PAUL STUDY ON THE CONVERSION OF SAUL TO PAUL STORY WITH THE CONVERSION OF SAUL TO PAUL MESSAGE

          Saul was going around making threats about slaughter against the disciples of Jesus. He went to the high priest and asked him to write letters to the synagogues of Damascus, allowing him if he found anyone preaching about Jesus Christ, whether man or woman, to bring them as prisoners to Jerusalem. The high priests agreed to his request.

          On his way to Damascus, when he was near the city, suddenly a light from heaven shined around Saul, and he fell to the earth, and heard a voice say to him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? He answered, Who are you Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus, whom you persecute, itís hard for you to kick against the goads. Time for a Daily Bread Crumb here. What is a goad? Itís something sharp, and kicking something sharp is ... Well, why do it? So hereís Jesus saying in His unique way, Saul, Saul, itís silly for you to try to be something youíre really not. Why are you fighting against whatís right?

          Saul, trembling and astonished said, Lord, what do you want me to do? Jesus said, Get up and go into the city and youíll be told what you must do. The men who traveled with Saul, stood speechless, because they could hear Jesus' voice but they couldn't see anybody. Saul stood up and opened his eyes, but he was blinded, so they led him by the hand into Damascus.

          For three days, Saul was without sight, and he didnít eat or drink anything either. There was a disciple in Damascus named Ananias, and the Lord called to him in a vision, Ananias. And he answered, Iím here Lord. And the Lord said, Get up and go into the street named Straight, and ask in the house of Judas for a man named Saul, of Tarsus. Heís praying and has seen a man named Ananias in a vision coming in and putting his hand on him, so he can see again.

THE CONVERSION OF SAUL TO PAUL LESSON WITH THE CONVERSION OF SAUL TO PAUL EXPLANATION

          Ananias answered, Lord, Iíve heard about this man from many people and how much evil heís done to your saints at Jerusalem, and here in Damascus he has permission from the chief priests to bind anyone who calls on your name. But the Lord said to him, Be on your way, because he is a chosen vessel to me, to carry my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel. Iíll show him what great things he must suffer for my nameís sake. Ananias went his way, and entered into the house of Judas, and putting his hands on Saul said, Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on your way to Damascus, has sent me, so that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.

          Immediately, as if they were scales, fell from Saulís eyes and he could see, and he stood up and was baptized. And when he ate, he was strengthened, and he stayed with the disciples who were in Damascus for several days. Without hesitation, Saul preached in the synagogues, that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Everyone who heard him was amazed, saying, Isnít this the man who destroyed all who called on Jesus name in Jerusalem, and came here with that intent, so he could bind them and bring them to the chief priests?

          Why would the Lord choose someone like Saul to convert? Why would He choose His enemy to spread His word? The question is ... Why wouldnít He? Who would better prove the salvation of the Lord, than the most unlikely candidate?

          Saul increased more in strength, and confused the Jewish people who lived in Damascus, proving that this truly is Christ. The Jewish people made plans to kill Saul, but their plot was known to him, and they watched the city gates day and night to kill him. Then the disciples took him in the middle of the night, and let him down by the wall, to get out of the city, in a basket.

          When Saul arrived in Jerusalem, he tried to join the disciples, but they were all afraid of him, and didnít believe that he was a disciple. But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and told them how he had seen the Lord and that He had spoken to him, and how Saul had preached boldly in Damascus in the name of Jesus. (Remember Barnabas was the Levite from Cyprus who sold his land and brought the money to the apostles when the Christians first started living in commonwealth.)

THE CONVERSION OF SAUL TO PAUL INFORMATION WITH THE CONVERSION OF SAUL TO PAUL MEANING

          They then accepted Saul, and he was with them in their ministry both in and out of Jerusalem. He spoke boldly in the name of Jesus and disputed against the Grecians, but they wanted to kill him. When the other disciples found out, they brought Saul down to Cśsarea, and sent him out to Tarsus (where Saul was from). Then there was peace in the churches throughout all Judśa and Galilee and Samaria, and people were enlightened, and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, and Christians were increased in number.

          Now, it came to pass, that as Peter traveled throughout the region, he went down also to the saints who lived in Lydda. There was a man named ∆neas, who was bedridden for eight years, and paralyzed. Peter said to him, ∆neas, Jesus Christ heals you, stand up and make your bed. And he stood up immediately. Everyone who lived in Lydda and Saron saw him and believed in the Lord.

         And there was a disciple in Joppa named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas, which means, Clear-sighted; A roe-deer. She was full of good works and works of mercy that she did. She was sick and died, and they prepared her body and laid her in an upper room. As Lydda was near Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent two men to him, asking him if he would hurry and come to them.

          Peter went with them, and when they got to Joppa, they brought him into the upper room, and all the widows stood by him weeping and showing him the coats and garments that Dorcas had made while she was with them. Peter sent them all out, kneeled down and prayed, and turning toward her, said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter, she sat up. He held out his hand and lifted her up, and then brought her out alive to the saints and widows.

          It was heard about all through Joppa, and many believed in the Lord, and it came to pass that Peter stayed many days in Joppa with a man named Simon who was a tanner. Some pretty amazing acts of the apostles, wouldnít you say? Just a couple of little things to note. Luke refers to the Christians as saints. Thatís just SO cool. And also, weíve just learned that disciples are women as well as men. Discipleship has no gender, so keep that in mind. Thereís still more about Saul coming up in future chapters, but donít miss our study tomorrow, when Peter has an important vision. Weíll look into that in our next Daily Bread.
