Beulah Land: Paul’s Conversion
Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Romans 14:11
Summary: Today’s is the story of Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus, meeting with Ananias, his baptism and his escape in a basket to tell others about Jesus! You can find the account in Acts 9.
Here is a picture of part of the story in case you’ve wondered what Beulah Land stories look like:
I Wonder… : why Saul was so angry with the followers of Jesus? what it feels like to change? what you think about Paul? why people didn’t trust him? where else you have heard about three days? what made Paul so eager to tell others about Jesus?
Additional Followup: This would be a dramatic story to act out with your family if you wanted to! It would be a great review of the story at home. If you wanted to focus on Paul’s escape, you could build a wall of blocks or legos and make this little craft. I saw it on pinterest and thought it was fun. Not necessary by any means, but if you’re the crafty type, give it a go! There are no instructions, but it looks straightforward enough.
