Acts 9: 18 – 19
He (Saul) got up and was baptized, and after taking some food, he regained his strength.
What’s Going On?
Ananias baptises Saul.
Paul stays with Jesus’ disciples for several days of recovery.
Saul will leave Damascus for about three years, going to Arabia (per his account in Galatians 1:15-17)
What Are We Seeing?
Ananias pours a cup of water over Saul’s head to baptize him.
The geometry of their bodies directs our eyes upward, with Paul’s hands pointing to Ananias, and Ananias’ left hand pointing to heaven.
Ananias’ arms also form a circle, as if he were holding an invisible sphere, a symbol of unity.
