Biblical person: Sergius Paulus (governor)
Creative activities and ideas based on the biblical figure of Sergius Paulus (governor)
Sergius Paulus was a Roman proconsul and a prominent official in the city of Paphos on the island of Cyprus. He is mentioned in the New Testament in Acts 13, where he is described as an intelligent man who summoned the apostle Paul and Barnabas to hear the word of God. During their visit, Sergius Paulus became a believer in Jesus Christ, but was opposed by a Jewish false prophet named Elymas. Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, rebuked Elymas and he was struck blind. Sergius Paulus was amazed at the power of God and came to faith in Jesus Christ, becoming one of the first Gentile converts in the New Testament.
