3 As he was traveling, it happened that he was approaching Damascus, and asuddenly a light from heaven flashed around him;
4 and ahe fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”
6 but get up and enter the city, and ait will be told you what you must do.”
11 And the Lord said to him, “Get up and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for a man from aTarsus named Saul, for he is praying,
16 for aI will show him how much he must suffer for My name’s sake.”
17 So Ananias departed and entered the house, and after alaying his hands on him said, “bBrother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road by which you were coming, has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be cfilled with the Holy Spirit.”
Saul Begins to Preach Christ
21 All those hearing him continued to be amazed, and were saying, “Is this not he who in Jerusalem adestroyed those who bcalled on this name, and who had come here for the purpose of bringing them bound before the chief priests?”
22 But Saul kept increasing in strength and confounding the Jews who lived at Damascus by proving that this Jesus is the 1Christ.
27 But aBarnabas took hold of him and brought him to the apostles and described to them how he had bseen the Lord on the road, and that He had talked to him, and how cat Damascus he had dspoken out boldly in the name of Jesus.
39 So Peter arose and went with them. When he arrived, they brought him into the aupper room; and all the bwidows stood beside him, weeping and showing all the 1tunics and garments that Dorcas used to make while she was with them.
