    Paul who was chosen of God to bring the gospel of salvation to the Gentiles was a ROMAN !
  • Patricia Zahler for verse 21
    Years of teachin Sunday morning and afternoon and evening had me perplexed by seeming contradictions. At age 37 my spiritual eyes were opened when I put my life into God's Hands. The loudest verse was The Great Commission, Matthew 28 19 and 20. There is a comma after nations, teaching themvti observe all things whatsoever I have COMMANDED you." What were the all things. Then Paul's message became clear. And backed up by the fact the apostles had not left Jerusalem after 15 years because every Jew had to be saved BEFORE they could take the message to the nations. See Acts 28:24-29.

    Paul had great zeal in persecuting the Christians but God turned it around and he became a zealot for the teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Is 'nt God Awesome? He can do anything.
