Biblical Character
    (circa 3-66)
    Birth name was Saul of Tarsus
    Wrote 'Romans,' '1st and 2nd Corinthians,' 'Galatians,' 'Ephesians,' 'Philippians,' 'Colossians,' '1st and 2nd Thessalonians,' '1st and 2nd Timothy,' 'Titus,' 'Philemon' and 'Hebrews'
    Most scholars believe he never even met Jesus.
    He was a member of the Jewish secret police, and persecuted Christians before joining the faith himself.
    He bullied the other apostles and took things over once Jesus was out of the picture.
    He was a fierce social conservative.
    Some say he put his own prejudices into his preaching, ignoring Jesus' actual views on the subject.
    He bargained with non-believers to convert them, incorporating some questionable practices into Christianity.
    He said that women were inferior to men.
    He had no moral objection to slavery.
    He almost single-handedly transformed the stories of Jesus into a religion for people to join.
    Without him, there would almost certainly be no Christianity today.
    It was his idea to open up the religion to non-Jews.
    He was jailed, whipped and stoned for preaching what he believed.
    It's believed the Emperor Nero eventually had him beheaded.
    He once exorcized a possessed girl, but was thrown in jail when she could no longer tell fortunes (that's gratitude for you).
    The capital of Minnesota is named for him.
