He has seen you in a vision (a special experience when God gave Saul specific instructions) coming to help him. I know about this man, Ananias said. He wants to hurt all the people who love Jesus. Go and help him, God said. I will use this man to tell people about My Son, Jesus. So Ananias went to the house and found Saul. Saul had been blinded by a bright light on the road into the city. Ananias put his hands on Saul, and Saul could see again. Saul stayed in the city and told about Jesus in the synagogues, telling everyone that Jesus is the Son of God.
