13. The Conversion of Saul
a. Appeared To by the Lord
1 But aSaul, still breathing threatening and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest
2 And asked for aletters from him to Damascus for the bsynagogues, so that if he found any who were of the 1cWay, both men and women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.
3 And as he went, he adrew near to Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.
4 And he fell on the ground and heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting 1aMe?
5 And he said, Who are You, 1Lord? And He said, I am Jesus, whom you persecute.
6 But arise up and enter into the city, and it 1will be told to you bwhat you must do.
7 And the men who journeyed with him stood speechless, ahearing the voice but seeing no one.
8 And Saul rose from the ground; and though his eyes were open, he could see 1nothing. And they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus.
9 And he was three days without seeing, and he neither ate nor drank.
