When you think of Paul, perhaps one of the following comes to mind: famous Christian convert, prolific biblical author, influential Christian teacher and leader, apostle to the gentiles, or miracle worker. But who was Paul, really? What was his life like, what did he teach, how did he act, and what was most important to him? In this course, trace some of the major events in Paul’s life and explore the different personas he adopted in order to reach the ends of the earth with the gospel message. Discover a man who truly believed and lived the idea that there is nothing better than the gospel of Jesus Christ.
