HOLIDAYS WITH A CRIMINAL BACKGROUND

According to Oleg Loginov.

July 12 — IS THE DAY OF REMEMBRANCE OF THE APOSTLE PAUL IN THE ORTHODOX RELIGION

Rembrandt van Rijn. «The Apostle Paul»

The real name of the Apostle Paul is Saul. He was born in Tarsus, the main city of Cilicia, and was a Jew of the Mediterranean diaspora.

The conversion of St. Paul on the road to Damascus

As a militant Pharisee, Saul participated in the persecution of the first Christians, imprisoning them in prisons. He begged letters from the high priest to the synagogues in Damascus to arrest followers of the teachings of Jesus Christ there. On the way to Damascus, he was blinded by the sudden brightest light from heaven and, hearing the reproachful voice of Jesus, believed in Him. Those who went with him brought Saul to Damascus, where he was healed of blindness by Ananias and was baptized. Already in Damascus, Saul began to preach in synagogues about Jesus, that He is the Son of God. In Cyprus, he converted the proconsul Sergius Paul to Christ, after which Saul is called Paul.

Giovanni Paolo Pannini. «St. Paul’s Sermon on the Ruins»

He created numerous Christian communities on the territory of Asia Minor and the Balkan Peninsula. He preached the doctrine of salvation not by works, but by faith and the power of grace, and finally separated Christian teaching from Judaism and Judaizing Christians. He was captured in Jerusalem and taken to Rome, where, according to the verdict of the court, he was beheaded on June 29, the day when the Apostle Peter was crucified.

James Tissot. «Saint Paul»

According to John Chrysostom, Paul’s death was caused by the fact that he converted the cupbearer Nero to Christianity.

The Apostle Paul was not crucified, but as a Roman citizen — beheaded presumably in 67 during the reign of Emperor Nero.

Hans Suess Kulmbach. «Beheading of the head of St. Paul»

The apocrypha tells about his martyrdom as follows: «And with those words he came to the place of execution, where, turning to the east and raising his hands to heaven, he prayed for a long time in Hebrew with tears and thanked God. When he finished the prayer in his native language, saying goodbye to his brothers, he blessed them and, blindfolding himself with a cape of Plautilla, rested his knees on the ground and stretched out his neck. The executioner, swinging high, struck with force and cut off his head. And she, already separated from the body, glorified the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in a sonorous voice in Hebrew. And immediately a stream of milk gushed from his body onto the warrior’s clothes, and then the blood flowed. When they wanted to take the cape with which he had blindfolded himself before the execution, it was not there. At the very moment of cutting off his head, such immensity of light and sweetness of smell poured from the sky that the eyes of mortals could not bear the radiance, and the human tongue could not describe the fragrance of that»

Paul is not among the twelve apostles and the seventy apostles. But together with the apostle Peter, he is called the «first-born» apostle.

Catholics celebrate the memory of Peter and Paul on June 29
