The Acts of the Apostles     9: 26-31

9:26 And when he had arrived in Jerusalem, he attempted to join himself to the disciples. And they were all afraid of him, not believing that he was a disciple.
9:27 But Barnabas took him aside and led him to the Apostles. And he explained to them how he had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken to him, and how, in Damascus, he had acted faithfully in the name of Jesus.
9:28 And he was with them, entering and departing Jerusalem, and acting faithfully in the name of the Lord.
9:29 He also was speaking with the Gentiles and disputing with the Greeks. But they were seeking to kill him.
9:30 And when the brothers had realized this, they brought him to Caesarea and sent him away to Tarsus.
9:31 Certainly, the Church had peace throughout all of Judea and Galilee and Samaria, and it was being built up, while walking in the fear of the Lord, and it was being filled with the consolation of the Holy Spirit.
