The Conversion of St. Paul

“When God summoned Moses to liberate Israel from Egypt, his goal was to establish a covenant people based on the gift of Mosaic law. When Christ commissioned Paul on the Damascus road, he charged him to preach the gospel to the Gentiles, calling them to join the one body of Christ, the Church. Divine revelation neither occurs in a vacuum nor is primarily addressed to individuals. God’s word establishes and nurtures community. It is through community that God seeks to fulfill his purposes in history.”  (Theodore G. Stylianopoulos in The Cambridge Companion to Orthodox Christian Theology edited by Mary B. Cunningham and Elizabeth Theokritoff, pgs. 24-25)
