Summary/Abstract: From a general perspective, we attempt to analyze and describe, in the first part of our study, the historical religious context of the formation of the Apostle Paul, his emergence on the firmament of biblical history as well as the metanoic process that will take place, beginning with his itinerary on the road of Damascus. This moment will become a crucial one in his life, and we say it because from this moment he has the revelation which will persuade him that he had to preach the teachings of Jesus, the crucified, risen and exalted1, whom he had recently persecuted. He will preach that even with the risk of suffering for Him and on His behalf. In the second part, we will focus on the propagation of Christianity and on the relations between Christians and the ruling authorities, previous to the missionary activity of Paul, the Holy Apostle.
