After knowing the circumstances under which Paul was brought to believe in Jesus Christ, it is easier to understand the incredible amount of faith he had in what he was preaching.

These early followers of Christ set the world on fire, by relaying the Good news of Jesus Christ, first to the nation of Israel then to the gentile world. The Bible tells us that the Apostle Peter was commissioned to bring the announcement of Christ’s death and resurrection to his Jewish brethren, whereas, the Apostle Paul was chosen by Christ to bring the Gospel message of salvation to the gentile world.

The birth of Jesus was a prophecy that came to pass so this lets me know that this was foreseen as an act of love from our Lord and savior.

This bible passage is presented in the ‘Who do you say I am?’ portrait in four different panels. Each of the four boxes at the bottom of the portrait depict each perspective of what the disciples said they had heard from other people of how they see Jesus: John the Baptist, Elijah, One of the Prophets and the Messiah. Through God’s direction, John the Baptist tested the preparation of the people for the imminent coming of the Messiah. This was done by being turned away from sin and being baptized as a symbol of repentance.
