Saint Paul was an apostle (though not one of the 12 Apostles) who taught the gospel of Christ to the first-century world. In the mid-1930s to the mid-1950s, he founded several churches in Asia Minor and Europe. 14 of the 27 books in the New Testament have traditionally been attributed to him.
According to Acts, Paul traveled to Ephesus on his third missionary journey, an important center of early Christianity and stayed there for almost three years. He is claimed to have performed numerous miracles, healing people and casting out demons.
Paul is here represented Healing the sick on this luminous oil on canvas.
