1. Paul D.

    In 2 Maccabees, a persecutor of the Jews is stopped on the road by a vision, blinded, cared for Jews while he recovers, and then converts to the faith of the people he once opposed. It seems pretty clear to me that this was at least in part the literary origin of Paul’s conversion in Acts (of which the writer, who was clearly not trying to convey historical history, gives three contradictory accounts).
