Origin
This is a historic and geographic map tracing the travels, history and vocation of St. Paul. St. Paul was an apostle born in 5 A.D. who took the gospel of Christ to the first-century world. He is generally considered one of the most important figures of the Apostolic Age. He is also known as Paul the Apostle. It is recorded that St. Paul took four journeys. The First Journey, Second Journey, Third Journey, and his voyage to Rome where he likely died in 67 A.D. During his journeys he endured much hardship and many imprisonments. Paul also is responsible for writing many epistles of the New Testiment.
