Jerusalem, Until Ye Be Endued with Power from on High"-Luke 24:49 One of those who may have stood on a hilltop contemplating Jerusalem after the Crucifixion was a young Jew, Saul of Tarsus, later known as Paul. At first a persecutor of Christians, Saul became a convert, spreading the new religion through much of the Roman Empire. During his lifetime Christianity developed from a small Jewish community into a widespread faith. The command quoted above was Jesus' last to His disciples.
