The answer is found in Acts 13:9. There is a misconception that Saul became Paul at his conversion. But, if we consider that the name Paul is the Greek version of the Hebrew name Shaul, it will avoid misinterpreting Scripture. 

We must bear in mind that the Bible was written in Hebrew and Greek. The Holy Spirit admonishes us to study to show ourselves approved, rightly dividing the word of truth!
