Window Nº16

Barnabas Welcoming Saul (see Acts 9:26 and 27)


This stained glass window is situated at the end of the nave of the Cathedral on the northwest side

Saul was a Jew who persecuted the first Christians until his miraculous conversion on the road to Damascus, when he changed completely and began to teach about Jesus.

The followers of Jesus were suspicious of Saul, but Barnabas found him and took him to the leaders, explaining what had happened.

Saul, who took the name of Paul after his conversion, was one of the main leaders in the early Christian church.

The church (now cathedral) of St Paul was named after him.

Inscription: “To the memory of Captain George A. King the marine superintendent of the Pacific Steam Navigation Company dedicated by his brother commanders”.

No visible signature: possibly attributed to Lavers & Westlake.
