“And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.”
King James Version (KJV)
9:6 It shall be told thee - So God himself sends Saul to be taught by a man, as the angel does Cornelius, #Acts 10:5|. Admirable condescension! that the Lord deals with us by men, like ourselves.
Ac 9:6 And he, trembling and astonished, said, Lord, What wilt thou have me to do?

Arise, and go into the city, etc. He must enter the church just as others. The Lord had appeared to him in order that he might be qualified for apostleship by having seen Christ, but he must learn the way of the gospel from one of its preachers. Christ never told a mortal how to be saved after he gave the Great Commission to the church.
