Paul the Apostle, also called the Apostle Paul, Paul of Tarsus, and Saint Paul, (Ancient Greek: Σαούλ (Saul), Σαῦλος (Saulos), and Παῦλος (Paulos); Latin: Paulus or Paullus; Hebrew: שאול התרסי‎ aʾul HaTarsi (Saul of Tarsus)[3] (c. 5 - c. 67 ),[2] was of the tribe of Benjamin.[4][5] He was a zealous Jew, who persecuted the early followers of Jesus Christ. However after his "Resurrection experience", he became a Christian and referred to himself as the "Apostle to the Gentiles".[6][7]
According to the Acts of the Apostles, his conversion to faith in Jesus took place in a profound life-changing experience on the road to Damascus. Together with Simon Peter and James the Just, he is considered among the most notable of early Christian leaders.[8] He was also a Roman citizena fact that afforded him a privileged legal status with respect to laws, property, and governance.[5][9]
Thirteen epistles, or letters, in the New Testament are attributed to Paul. Within these epistles, other letters are referenced that do not appear in the Bible, such as a Laodicean epistle.[10] His authorship of six of the thirteen is questioned by some scholars,[11] three of which are more widely debated.[12] Paul's influence on Christian thinking arguably has been more significant than any other New Testament author.[11] Augustine of Hippo developed Paul's idea that salvation is based on faith and not "Works of the Law".[11] Martin Luther's interpretation of Paul's writings heavily influenced Luther's doctrine of sola fide.
