From the Paper:

"The Bible's Acts of the Apostles tell us that Paul, the Gentile, was converted from Judaism on the road to Damascus; he remained for a time in Damascus following his Baptism before leaving for Arabia. It is believed that Paul remained in Arabia for some time, "possibly for a year or two to prepare himself for his future missionary activity." When Paul returned to Damascus, he again stayed for a time, preaching in the synagogues and telling all who would listen that "Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God." Historical references to Paul's early life--from his birth and prior to his conversion on the road to Damascus--are woefully lacking."
