On his way to Damascus to continue his persecution of the Christians, Saul was surrounded by a heavenly light. • The voice of the Lord asked, “Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?” • Saul asked Jesus what he should do and was told he would meet someone who would help him.
Saul was blind for three days. He did not eat or drink. • He realized he had done many bad things and felt terrible about the choices he had made.
Saul repented and his sight was restored after receiving a priesthood blessing. • He was baptized. • For many days Saul remained with Jesus’ disciples, learning all that he could from them.
Before long, Saul, the man who had persecuted Christians, was testifying of Jesus Christ in the synagogues. • Nevertheless, many people continued to persecute the Christians.
One time when the people decided to kill Saul, he escaped by being lowered over the city wall in a basket by some of the disciples. • Saul traveled to Jerusalem and tried to join the Christians there, but they remembered his persecutions and were afraid of him.
One of the disciples, Barnabas, took Saul to the Apostles Peter and James, the brother of Jesus. • Saul told them of his wonderful vision and conversion. • They knew that he spoke the truth and accepted him with love.
Saul taught in the name of Jesus Christ and bore his testimony to the people. • They would not listen and again tried to kill Saul. • The Apostles were afraid for Saul’s life and told him to return to his home in Tarsus, where they hoped he would be safe.
Several years later, Barnabas traveled to Tarsus and found Saul. They traveled to other lands. • They taught the people about Jesus and preached the gospel. • About this time Saul began to be called by his Latin name, Paul.
In Lystra, Paul healed a man who had been crippled since birth. • The local people saw and heard about what Paul had done.
They thought Paul and Barnabas were gods and wanted to worship them and offer sacrifices to them. • Paul and Barnabas convinced the people that they were not gods.
On Paul’s second missionary journey, he and another Apostle, Silas, crossed the Aegean Sea to preach the gospel in Macedonia. • Many learned the gospel and were converted.
People liked to hear what the evil spirit said through her. • They paid the men she worked for to hear the evil spirit speak. • A girl had an evil spirit in her.
Whenever Paul and Silas walked by, the girl followed them. As she did, the evil spirit spoke. • One day Paul commanded the evil spirit to leave her. It did. • The men she worked for were angry. • Now they could not make money.
The men took Paul and Silas to the leaders of their city. • They said that Paul and Silas had been causing trouble. • The leaders had Paul and Silas whipped and put in prison.
That night, Paul and Silas prayed and sang hymns to Heavenly Father. • Everyone in the prison heard them. • Suddenly, the ground began to shake and the prison doors opened.
The guard woke up and saw the open doors. • He thought the prisoners had escaped. • Paul told the guard not to worry. The prisoners were all still there. The guard knelt by Paul and Silas and asked how he could be saved.
Paul and Silas taught the guard and his family the gospel. That night the guard and his family were baptized. • The next day the city leaders set Paul and Silas free. Paul and Silas went to another city to do more missionary work.
After Paul and Barnabas healed the crippled man at Lystra, who did the people think they were? (Acts 14:11–12.)
Jupiter and Mercurius were false gods the people worshiped. They did not know about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. • What did Paul and Barnabas try to teach the people about Jesus Christ? (Acts 14:14–17.)
How was Paul treated by the Jews of Antioch and Iconium? (Acts 14:19.) • Why do you think he continued preaching the gospel after being so badly treated?
