Another member left the synagogue, converting to the rapidly budding messianic religion. How could they be so foolish? How could they so easily be deceived? There was no doubt in Saul's mind Jesus was a false prophet, a heretic who had the uncanny ability to manipulate others into believing he was the Messiah the Old Testament prophets saw in their visions; the Messiah the prophets said would some day arrive. The zealous Pharisee had seen enough. He took it upon himself to destroy this new religion called the Way. He transformed himself into a hunter of men, a hunter who sought the blood of anyone associated with the teachings of the Nazarene. One day during Saul's travels, something happened that would forever change him. A mysterious knowledge was revealed to him; a mysterious revelation from Jesus himself. The impact from this revelation caused Saul to suddenly and unexpectedly convert to the very religion he had previously outright despised. The once zealous Pharisee, who had hunted Christians, had now become one of them. From that point on, the former Pharisee would no longer be known as Saul. His new name would be Paul the apostle. What was this revelation that made Paul convert to Christianity and ultimately become the most prolific writer within the New Testament? What was this revelation which caused the most zealous of Judaic teachers to become a follower of the man named Jesus of Nazareth? The answer resides in the paradoxical, central theme of Paul's writings. It is within this central theme that Paul is attempting to reveal to humanity what was revealed to him. The Judaic texts contain a veil, a barrier that is hiding another message; a message that no one on earth can currently see because no one fully understands the doctrine of Christ. This is the dawning of a new day. This is the beginning of the Second Exodus.
