CONTENT OF THE LESSON

LESSON 1 – INTRODUCTION

Conversion means changing one religion (faith) for another.

 

PAUL’S PROPOSED MISSION TO DAMASCUS – ACTS 9: 1 – 2

After killing Stephen, Paul and his friend killed many Christians in Jerusalem.

The surviving Christians fled to places like Judea, Samaria and Damascus. In all these places, the Christians told the people about Jesus, the savior of the world.

 

Many believed them and became Christians. Paul obtained permission to arrest the Christians in Damascus. Paul and his friends were very happy, and they made preparations for the journey to Damascus.

Paul’s proposed mission to Damascus is to arrest the Christians.

 

LESSON 2 – WHAT HAPPENED TO PAUL ON THE WAY – ACTS 9: 3 – 9

To get to Damascus, Paul and his friends rode on horses. As they were talking about how to arrest the Christians on their way to Damascus, something strange happened to Paul. A lightening flashed and blinded Paul on his way to Damascus.

He fell on the ground and heard a voice (of Jesus) calling his Jewish name,

“Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?.

And Paul asked,

” who are you, Lord?.

And Jesus replied,

“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting, but rise and enter the city and you will be told what to do.”

All the friends of Paul became afraid because they heard the voice but saw no one. Paul “now blind” was taken to Damascus and stayed in the house of a man called Judas.
