Sample text

With the events of Pentecost, the activity of the Spirit became much more intimate and personal. No longer was his activity sporadic and temporary; at Pentecost the Spirit took on a new role as the indwelling and empowering presence in the life of each individual believer. This personal indwelling occurs at the moment of salvation when the Spirit baptizes believers into the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13), sealing them (Ephesians 1:13; 4:30), and beginning the work of transforming them to the image of Christ (1 Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 1:6; 2:13).

The influence of these three cultures converged to prepare him for his life mission. Paul was born in Tarsus, capital of a Roman province, around the same time as Christ (Acts 9:11). Prior to Paul’s birth, his father had become a Roman citizen. Paul inherited this citizenship from which he would benefit throughout his life (Acts 16:37; 22:25). His status as a citizen of Rome gave him a special legal protection in his trials in Ephesus and Philippi. It also allowed him to appeal to Caesar during his trials before Festus and Agrippa.

No follower of Christ took the great commission to “go therefore and make disciples of all the nations” (Matthew 28:19) more seriously than Paul. He was both “a man of letters” and “a man of action” who made his mark on world history (Bruce, 1977, p. 17). As such, he belongs to “that select company who leave their mark on their time, who mold their contemporaries, and exert an influence which stretches far into the future” (Bruce, 1977, p. 462). Through his work, he personally shaped the character of the church and the ideals for the Christian community, not only in the first century but for centuries to come.
