Galatians 1:13; Galatians 1:23 (New International Version)
For you have heard of my previous way of life in Judaism, how intensely I persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it.
They only heard the report: "The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy."
