Once Saul had become a Christian he wanted to tell other people what had happened to him and who he now believed Jesus was. When the Jews heard what Saul was now saying, they planned to kill him. Saul had to escape in a basket out the city wall and he headed for Jerusalem.
The disciples in Jerusalem were afraid of Saul. There was one man called Barnabas who wasn’t afraid of Saul and took him to the Apostles so they could hear what had happened to Saul on the road to Damascus.
Barnabas went from Jerusalem to Antioch to encourage the Christians there. Paul later joined him and they spent a year at the church in Antioch preaching and helping the church tell others about Jesus.
