The Prisoner. While imprisoned by Rome, the Apostle Paul wrote the revered book of Ephesians. Paul is considered one of the most important figures of the Early Qahal (Church) believers. Paul was dedicated to persecuting the early disciples and followers of Yeshua. He was known as a “Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee”, a man esteemed by the religious system in Judea almost 2000 years ago. However, life changed when he became a true servant of the living God. He went on to experience shame, persecution and imprisonment. Eventually he was put to death by the same religious system that he once served.
