Smith'as Bible Dictionary - A Glimpse The Apostle Paul in Bible
Smith's Bible Dictionary - Biography of Paul
... PAUL (means small, little) ... Nearly all the original materials for the life St. Paul are contained in the Acts of the Apostles and in the Pauline epistles. Paul was born in Tarsus, a city of Cilicia. (It is not improbable that he was born between A.D. 0 and A.D. 5.) Up to the time of his going forth as an avowed preacher of Christ to the Gentiles, the apostle was known by the name of Saul. This was the Jewish name which he received from his Jewish parents. But though a Hebrew of the Hebrews, he was born in a Gentile city. Read the rest of biography from: BIBLE HISTORY ONLINE
My Favorite St Paul Quote:
"More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us."
"Love is patient, love is kind, love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way, it is not irritable or resentful, it does not rejoice in wrong doing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes in all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends."

SEVEN REASONS TO LOVE St PAUL
SEVEN REASONS TO LOVE THE APOSTLE PAUL The essence of the life of the Apostle Paul In the Bible is revealed in Acts 20:18-38. Let us take a brief look.
1. He was faithful
Act 20:18 And when they had come, he said to them, You yourselves have seen what my life has been like all the time from the day when I first came into Asia,
2. He was humble.
Act 20:19 Doing the Lord's work without pride, through all the sorrow and troubles which came on me because of the evil designs of the Jews: Act 20:20 And how I kept back nothing which might be of profit to you, teaching you publicly and privately,
3. He was compassionate.
Act 20:21 Preaching to Jews and to Greeks the need for a turning of the heart to God, and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
4. He was determined to preach.
Act 20:22 And now, as you see, I am going to Jerusalem, a prisoner in spirit, having no knowledge of what will come to me there: Act 20:23 Only that the Holy Spirit makes clear to me in every town that prison and pains are waiting for me. Act 20:24 But I put no value on my life, if only at the end of it I may see the work complete which was given to me by the Lord Jesus, to be a witness of the good news of the grace of God. Act 20:25 And now I am conscious that you, among whom I have gone about preaching the kingdom, will not see my face again. 5. He had a clear conscience.
Act 20:26 And so I say to you this day that I am clean from the blood of all men. Act 20:27 For I have not kept back from you anything of the purpose of God.
6. He was a pastor/shepherd.
Act 20:28 Give attention to yourselves, and to all the flock which the Holy Spirit has given into your care, to give food to the church of God, for which he gave his blood. Act 20:29 I am conscious that after I am gone, evil wolves will come in among you, doing damage to the flock; Act 20:30 And from among yourselves will come men who will give wrong teaching, turning away the disciples after them. Act 20:31 So keep watch, having in mind that for three years without resting I was teaching every one of you, day and night, with weeping. Act 20:32 And now, I give you into the care of God and the word of his grace, which is able to make you strong and to give you your heritage among all the saints. Act 20:33 I have had no desire for any man's silver or gold or clothing. ... Act 20:34 You yourselves have seen that with these hands I got what was necessary for me and those who were with me. Act 20:35 In all things I was an example to you of how, in your lives, you are to give help to the feeble, and keep in memory the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, There is a greater blessing in giving than in getting. Act 20:36 And having said these words, he went down on his knees in prayer with them all.
7. He was loved.
Act 20:37 And they were all weeping, falling on Paul's neck and kissing him, Act 20:38 Being sad most of all because he had said that they would not see his face again. And so they went with him to the ship.
