Peter, a poor fisherman, became one of the first disciples and devoted followers of Christ. Paul was originally among the persecutors of Christians. On the way to Damascus he was blinded by a vision, and three days later - healed miraculously. Thus, by a furious adversary, he became the distributor of Christ's teaching.
