Paul’s Life in the New Testament

04 Jul

This is a rough sketch of where Paul was and what he was doing during his Apostleship to the gentiles. Unlike a similar blog I posted, this one concerns three-year blocks of time, which seems to be Paul’s pattern for his intended labor. Whatever he decided to do, he planned out a three year period for that work.

Time Where was Paul? What was Paul Doing?

Damascus and Arabia, then to Jerusalem and Caesarea and Tarsus. Vision of Jesus and conversion. Preaching the Gospel to Damascus and regions round about.
