Paul of Tarsus, in Cilicia, was also known by the Jewish name of Saul. Paul, a name he may have had thanks to his Roman citizenship, was born early in the first century A.D. or late in the last century B.C. He was executed in Rome, under Nero, in about A.D. 67.Paul, a Pharisee and tent-maker, was on his way to Damascus to continue his mission of stamping out converts to the new Jewish sect of Christians when he experienced a vision of Jesus, which he describes in Acts 9:1 – 9 (also Gal. 1:15–16). From then on he became a missionary, spreading the message of Christianity. He also wrote a large part of the New Testament.
