The Acts of the Apostles told what happened by Paul. It also went through more detailed stories. Paul made himself sound faithful to God yet he persecuted Christians. In the Acts of the Apostles, they talked about Paul as a bad person that hated the disciples of God. He asked the high priest if he had any letters they needed delivered to the synagogue at Damascus, so he could bring it and arrest the disciples taking them to Jerusalem. On the way there the Lord spoke to him making him blind. God then sent Ananias to bless Paul and return his vision. After this experience Paul began to preach the word. Paul said how he was a very holy man. He said that his proclamation of the Gospel was not of human origin, but through a revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ.
