Paul the Apostle a Christian missionary was the native of Tarsus, the capital city in the Roman province of Cilicia. He was the one who took the gospel of Christ to world. In his early ages he was very zealous of the Christians and had persecuted many of the early followers of Jesus and even violently tried to destroy the newly-forming Christian churches. In the letters he wrote he described himself as "a servant of Christ Jesus" and a one called to be an apostle or set apart for the gospel of God. This was the same person who after having a conversation and vision of God, changed his life and later he founded several churches in Asia Minor and Europe. Paul's Jewish name was "Saul" which means "asked for" or "prayed for". Before the conversion to Christ, he had been known and refereed under this name of "Saul". After the conversion to Christ which can be found in the book of Acts, we can see him being referred as Paul.
