Saul in Jerusalem

Acts 9

26 And t when he had come to Jerusalem, he attempted to join the disciples. And they were all afraid of him, for they did not believe that he was a disciple. 27 But u Barnabas took him and v brought him to the apostles and declared to them w how on the road he had seen the Lord, who spoke to him, and x how at Damascus he had y preached boldly in the name of Jesus. 28 So he went z in and out among them at Jerusalem, preaching boldly in the name of the Lord. 29 And he spoke and disputed against a the Hellenists. 1 But b they were seeking to kill him. 30 And when c the brothers learned this, they brought him down to Caesarea and sent him off d to Tarsus.

31 So e the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And f walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, g it multiplied.
