By showing that he was once such a dedicated Jew, he lets readers see that there was something so powerful to turn him away from Judaism. Not only does Paul show that God supports him, but also that it all it took was the coming of Jesus Christ to convert him from a devoted Jew into a Christian.

Even when Paul confronted people, his messages were about Jesus and his death burial and resurrection.
