THE CONTINUITY OF THE BIBLE: PAUL THE MISSIONARY APOSTLE

[Series showing the progressive unfoldment of the Christ, Truth, throughout the Scriptures.]

From Damascus to Antioch

From the August 1975 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Paul's natural impulse on returning from Damascus to Jerusalem was to seek out the disciples, and we are told in Acts ( 9:26 ) that "he assayed to join himself" to them, no doubt expecting a cordial reception as one who had preached the gospel with success in Damascus. If so, he must have been bitterly disappointed.
