    The Tentmakers Son

    Saul, have you finished your

    chores? the tentmaker asked. He

    walked into the workroom, but it

    was empty.

    Not again! he groaned. Wheres

    that boy gone now? Ill bet I know.

    Leaving his unfinished tent be-

    hind, the man stepped out into the

    bright sunshine. He headed for the

    synagogue in their town of Tarsus.

    This was the Jewish house of

    prayer. It was also the place where

    boys studied the Jewish faith.

    Sauls father wasnt surprised to

    find his son inside. Saul was asking

    his teacher, the rabbi, lots of ques-

    There you are, Saul!

    Saul turned around and saw his

    father. The boy became very quiet.

    Didnt we talk about this already,

    son? First do your chores. Then you

    are free to bother the rabbi with

    your questions.

    Im sorry, Father, Saul replied.

    Its all just so interesting!

    The rabbi laughed. Oh, its no

    problem. But it sounds as if youd

    better head home, Saul.

    The rabbi turned to Sauls father.

    Saul is a smart young man, he

    said. He loves our Jewish faith very

    much. I think hes ready to go to

    school in Jerusalem.

    At the school of Gamaliel, the

    famous rabbi?

    Yes, replied the rabbi. Saul has

    many gifts. One day we may hear

    great things about him.

    Gamaliel was one of the greatest

    Jewish teachers alive. Saul could

    hardly believe his luck! He was able

    to travel to Jerusalem and study

    there for many years. When he

    finished school, Saul, too, became

    a rabbi.

    At around this time, the teaching

    of someone called Jesus began to

    spread. Jesus followers said he had

    risen from the dead. They said he

    was the Son of God. Soon other peo-

    ple began to believe in Jesus, too.

    Saul didnt agree. He thought

    the followers of Jesus were wrong.

    They were confusing people. Saul

    knew that something had to be
