Title: A Synoptic Life of the Apostle Paul


Author: Pendleton, Philip Y.



Paul is born in Tarsus, a city of Cilicia (Acts xxii. 3, &c.): an Israelite, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew, i. e., one who spoke Hebrew (Phil. iii. 4, &c.); educated in Jerusalem under the celebrated Gamaliel (Acts xxii. 3); a Pharisee (Acts xxiii. 6, &c.); zealous of Jewish traditions (Gal. i. 13, 14, &c.); with his conscience pure (II. Tim. i. 3); blameless (Phil. iii. 6). He becomes the persecutor of the church (I. Tim. i. 12, 13, &c.) consenting to the death of Stephen (Acts xxii. 20, &c.): making havoc--a word "applied to the wild boars which uproot a vineyard"--of the church (Acts viii. 3, 4, &c.); imprisoning, beating (Acts xxii. 19, &c.); persecuting unto death (Acts xxii. 4, 5); compelling Christians to blaspheme, and being exceeding mad against them he persecuted them even unto strange cities (Acts xxvi. 11).
