St. Paul’s Conversion

 “If it was Paul’s experience of the resurrection – his encounter with the Risen Christ—that transformed his understanding of God’s purposes, this was because it was this experience that convinced him that the crucified Jesus was indeed ‘Christ’, the Messiah.  That recognition brought with it the acknowledgement that the crucifixion itself had been part of God’s saving purpose – an idea which he had previously regarded as blasphemous.”

               (Morna Hooker, PAUL: A BEGINNER’S GUIDE, p 47)
