- The Early Years Of Saul Of Tarsus. On the great day of Pentecost, Jews from throughout the Greco-Roman world traveled to Jerusalem to worship God (Acts 2:5-12). While Jews were found in every nation throughout the civilized world, anti-Semitism flourished. Among the nations of antiquity, no nation was ever hated as much as Israel. If Christianity were ever going conquer the world, then someone would have to bridge the gap between Jews and Gentiles. In the providence of God, Saul of Tarsus was selected (Acts 9:15; 26:12-18). This new book on focuses on Saul's Jewish roots (Phil. 3:5), his birth in Tarsus of Cilicia (Acts 21:39), and his education "at the feet of Gamaliel" (Acts 22:3). This book contains numerous color photographs from Tarsus of Cilicia (modern day Turkey) (PDF file size: 1.3MB).
