When was the apostle Paul born?


According to the Encyclopædia Britannica, the apostle Paul was most likely born in the year 4 B.C. in Tarsus, Cilicia, which is in modern Turkey. Paul was one of the earliest leaders of Christianity, and, by some accounts, second only to Jesus Christ in influence.

Paul is also notable because he was born a Hebrew and formerly adhered to Judaism. His early years were marked by animosity towards the Christian movement, which changed when Paul experienced a conversion while on the road to Damascus. In the events of the conversion, Paul is said to have experienced a vision of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
