Sail of Tarsus ... Paul

Tarsus was capital of the Roman province of Cilicia in southern Asia Minor and is generally considered to have been the birthplace of the Apostle Paul. Saul was his Jewish name and means literally "asked for." possibly in the sense of "prayed for"; while his Roman name of Paulus, or Paul, means "small," or "little." and may well imply a sense of humility (see Science and Health 326:27-30).
