St. Paul’s Missionary Journeys
Known as Saul, St. Paul was born in Tarsus, in what is modern-day Turkey. After his conversion on the road to Damascus where he experienced a vision of the resurrected Jesus, the Apostle Paul, a former persecutor of Christians, became one of the most significant Christian missionaries in history. As he spread Jesus’ message on three journeys throughout Asia Minor and Greece between about AD 47 and 57, Paul brought the Gospel to the masses and established new churches. He encountered much resistance along the way, particularly in Ephesus, and survived stonings, beatings, riots and imprisonment.
