Conversion and Its Consequences

Conversion and Its Consequences

(p.20) 2 Conversion and Its Consequences

Jerome Murphy-O'Connor

Oxford University Press

Paul’s encounter with Jesus transformed the knowledge he had of the founder of Christianity that he had gained as a persecutor. A very brief mission in Arabia was followed by three years in Damascus during which period he became a tentmaker. From Peter in Jerusalem, Paul learnt about the historical Jesus. His probing of the mystery of a Messiah who should not have died is at the root of his unique stress on the fact that Jesus died by crucifixion.

Keywords:   Arabia, conversion, crucifixion, Damascus, historical Jesus, Messiah, Paul, Peter, tentmaker, trade
