"Meanwhile Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?" -Acts 9:1-4
Saul/Paul was Christ’s choice for writer of much of the New Testament. Would it be fair to imagine a modern equivalent of Islamic Jihadist if the NT was being written today? What do you think?
