[sword-devel] GNU and OS ideologies and indulgences

This is completely off-topic but I will ask anyway :-)

Can you tell me where your scriptual reference for the Paul being renamed by
God argument is?

I have often been told this but have never found anything in the Bible to
back it up.

Am I missing it somewhere?

  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?
