When the Christian movement began, after the death of , he was strongly against it. He worked for the Government and helped lead the arrests and killing of many Christians in and the nearby area. While he was on the road to he had a vision. In the vision spoke to him, telling Saul that his persecution of Christians was a persecution of Jesus himself. Saul was blinded by the vision. A short time later he met Ananias, a disciple of Jesus, and his sight came back to him.
Saul was as a Christian and dedicated the rest of his life to educating people about the Christian faith. He wrote many letters to the churches he helped to begin and these letters contain many important parts of Christian teaching.
