What does Paul say about Jesus?
In Philippians 2:6–11 Paul states that Christ Jesus was preexistent and came to earth: he “emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness.” This sounds as if Jesus was a heavenly being who only appeared to be human.
Who healed Paul from blindness?
Despite Jesus’ earlier assurance that once Saul arrives in Damascus, “it will be told to you what it is necessary for you to do” (v. 6), Saul does not actually “do” anything to regain his sight. Instead, Saul discovers in a vision that a man named Ananias will heal him (vv. 11–12).

How did Jesus find Peter?
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed him.
