What the Bible Teaches
3. And as he journeyed he came near Damascus,
and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven.
4. Then he fell to the ground,
and heard a voice saying to him,
"Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?''
5. And he said, "Who are You, Lord?''
And the Lord said, "I am Jesus,
whom you are persecuting.
It is hard for you to kick against the goads.**''
(** Cattle prods. In other words,
I'm pressuring you and you're resisting.)
