He was known as Paul the Apostle who was originally named Saul and used to persecute Christians before his conversion took place on the road to Damascus where a light of Jesus Christ from heaven flashed around him. Since then, though jailed several times, Paul took great pains to spread the gospels throughout the Mediterranean till the end of his life.
