He grew up an Israelitish boy, nurtured in those histories of the chosen people which he was destined so often to repeat in the synagogues (Acts - 41, , 3, 10, 11, ) with the new and wonderful commentary supplied by the life and resurrection of a crucified Messiah.   The Apostle Paul, who started as one of Christianity's most zealous enemies, was hand-picked by Jesus Christ to become the gospel's most ardent messenger.
