Saint Paul
Synopsis
Shortly after the crucifixion of Christ, Saul, young Pharisee, enters into a pact with his friend Ruben, a Sadducee priest. Their aim is to save Israel from the threat of Christ's followers.
Saul and Ruben decide to go to Damascus to persecute the Christians of that city. However, on the way there, Saul is thrown to the ground and blinded by the very man he is persecuting: Jesus Christ.
Recovering his vision thanks to Ananias, he is baptized with the name Paul. Ruben considers his conversion to be the worst kind of betrayal.
