The True Story of Paul
As you've probably discovered by now, this is a clear allegory to the true story of Paul as found in the Bible. We know from the Bible that Saul was a dangerous man and was determined to stamp out all of the Christians that were rising after Jesus' death and resurrection. Saul wanted to stamp out these Christians and stop the spread of the Gospel message before it could continue. This is what Saul was known for at this time and it is even documented that Saul was present at the stoning of Stephen. It appears he looked on as it happened but made no moves to stop it. This might have been part of what inspired him to start killing Christians and hunting them out and arresting them. My Name is Paul directly mirrors this story with Saul determined to hunt down and kill those who defied the government.
For Saul, everything changed one day on the road to Damascus. Saul was travelling, presumably on his way to persecute and stamp out more Christians when he was struck blind in the middle of the road. During this time, Jesus appeared to him and asked why he was persecuting his followers. When Paul experienced this, it was in that moment he realized that everything that the Christians had been teaching was absolutely true. He had been in the wrong -- these Christians were right and he needed to follow Jesus too! This led Saul into Damascus where he met Ananias. This man healed him of his blindness and it was from this point on that Saul changed his name to Paul and quickly became known as one of the most devoted and successful missionaries of all time. Paul devoted his entire life to spreading the Gospel message and was willing to sacrifice everything to see this accomplished. My Name is Paul is a parallel to this story and tells an incredible story all while giving an incredible message that we never have to give up on hope. God will always take us back, no matter how far we've run from him.
My Name is Paul has a strong message of forgiveness and serves as an important reminder that God will always take us back no matter what we've done or what we've been through.
