Product Description

This is our beautiful Saint Paul of Tarsus Plaque.Paul the Apostle (Latin:  Paulus – “small” or “diminutive”) c. 5 – c. 67 a.d.), originally named Saul of Tarsus, was an apostle (though not one of the original Twelve Apostles). From c. 35 to c. 55 a.d., Paul founded several churches in Asia Minor and Europe. Paul used his status as both a Jew and  a Roman citizen to his advantage when evangelizing either Jewish or Roman audiences. His writings (a significant portion of the New Testament!) continue to nourish the theology, worship, and pastoral life in the Protestant, Roman Catholic and Orthodox traditions. St. Paul’s influence on Christian thought and practice has been and continues to be profound and pervasive. Saint Augustine of Hippo developed Paul’s tenet that salvation is based on faith and not on “works of the Law.” Martin Luther’s doctrine of “by faith alone” (sola fide) was heavily influenced by his reading of St. Paul’s writing. This plaque is then an excellent gift for a birthday, confirmation, first communion, and will make a great “stocking stuffer” for Christmas!).

From Saul the Persecutor to Paul the Apostle

What a transformation! While the zealous persecutor of the Jewish “heresy” of Christianity, he was literally knocked off his horse, blinded (top left of plaque – Acts 9:1-19), and converted into the Apostle to Jews and Gentiles. Rarely has a conversion been so dramatic and so momentous in the history of the Church. Saul became “all things to all” (I Corinthians 9:19-23): He now was Saul the Pharisaic Jew when evangelizing Jews and Paul the Roman citizen when preaching to Gentiles. Six scenes from the life of Saint Paul (in German, Paulus) are depicted on this plaque: top left – his blinding and conversion (Acts 9:1-19); top right – his stoning in Lystra (Acts 14:1-19); center left – preaching to Jews; center right – journeying to Gentiles; bottom left: sailing to Asia Minor (shipwrecked three times! – II Corinthians 11:25); and bottom right, Paul’s martyrdom (beheaded as a Roman citizen) in Rome during the reign of Nero c. 65 a.d. He shares his main feast day with Saint Peter the Apostle on June 29th.
