Our Story With God, Episode 39: The Last Disciple
My church, like many others, has devoted a considerable amount of time focused on the concept of discipleship. What does it mean? For one Jew, it meant a radical call away from a zealous life of persecuting the followers of Jesus into a new reality of self-sacrifice and obedience. God had a specific plan for Saul of Tarsus, as He does for each of us, but to get him started it was necessary for Jesus to get the young man's attention. What followed was an amazing story of rebirth, redemption, and spiritual growth that has affected nearly every Christian for 2,000 years.
