That’s the essence of genuine repentance-the mind does a turnaround…So many things within Saul’s thinking changed-and changed completely. He changed his mind about God, about Jesus, about the Resurrection, about those who followed Christ. He must have shaken his head for days. He thought Christ was dead. Paul shows that he was convinced Jesus was alive” (25).
