Calling All DL Biblical Scholars--Riddle Me This!

The Ken Mehlman discussions made me wonder about the Apostle Paul. %0D\ %0D\ %0D\ One of the most violent and prominent persecuters of Christians, Paul did a 180 after God bitch-smote him on the road to Damascus. And the rest was history.%0D\ %0D\ %0D\ My question: since Paul dominates the official New Testament, we don''t see how Paul''s former victims really felt about his conversion to, and takeover of their fledgling sect. Have you found evidence that many Christians told Paul to FOAD, that his persecutions led to oppression and death for many Christians, and they wanted no part of him? %0D\ %0D\ %0D\ Or do you think most people were just glad he was on their side now?%0D\ %0D\ %0D\ %0D\ Bible thumpers and strict constructionists need not respond, unless you have done the research. I''m a Christian, too, and I know Scripture. That''s not the point here.%0D

Not a big Paul fan. He was a BRILLIANT writer, though.
