The picture of Paul’s life gains appreciably in richness when we draw upon the historical references which we find in his own epistles. The epistles of Paul are so autobiographical in content. The frequent mention which he makes of his movements and plans helps us to fill in the gaps which we find in Acts. There are, for instance, in Galatians I and II references to his activities during the period between his conversion and his going to Antioch which at least slightly draw back the veil from this otherwise unknown period.
