This man Saul was unraveled by the preaching of Stephen, and not only voted for Stephen’s death but also witnessed his brutal execution. Afterwards, still enraged, Saul persecuted and arrested as many Christians as he could, even to Damascus. Along the way Jesus Himself intercepted Saul, asked him to his face why he persecuted Him! Saul instantly submitted and was converted, and when a man named Ananias is sent to him, his first words were: Brother Saul! Then he baptized Saul, who was formerly the greatest persecutor.
