  Although, wouldn't it be *incorrect* to refer to Paul as Rabbi Shaul 
(Saul), after he was renamed by God? Looking at my Greek Bible (some odd 
verison, and also the UBS/Nestle-Aland 26th), I can see that Paul's name (I 
checked a few of the Epistles) is Paulos, not Saul or Shaul.

    You have a better point on this one. I'd be half way inclined to 
translate it that way - but then again, you have to ask yourself this - 
should you go with the proper Hebrew and Greek names in the Bible, or the 
more familiar names that will make the Bible the most accessible?
