50: How Is Paul’s Conversion Evidence for the Resurrection?
Can you imagine if the world’s biggest terrorist, all of a sudden, based upon an experience he claims to have had, changed his mind about his ideology? What if the biggest enemy of a particular group of people, all of a sudden, became their biggest advocate? Well, this is exactly what happened in the first century with a man named Saul of Tarsus.
In this episode, Kenny examines the conversion of a man named Saul and his transformation into becoming the Apostle Paul. Saul was the biggest enemy of the church; he was zealous and passionate about stopping the spread of Christianity. But he would later become the biggest proponent of the church and did more to spread Christianity than anyone else in human history.
Why did he transform? Because he saw the resurrected Jesus!
