A very nice twist. It took a while to figure out who this uncle was. Well done.

This is excellent. You've taken a character out of Scripture that we know next to nothing about and brought him alive, as well as the one detail of his life that we have a record of. Very well done.

I knew I'd really like this after reading your first paragraph…and I wasn't disappointed. I was into the third paragraph before I figured out which Biblical characters this was about. I like your use of the word "apocryphal". You've written an excellent story based on Acts 23. I really like what you've done with this and the authenticity your Hebrew (?) words give this.

A very good condensed retelling of the life of the Apostle Paul. You helped us see him as others of his day would.

Love this take on a SO familiar character. Love the sprinkling of terminology, and the wonderful word choice. Compelling!
Paul is one of my favorite figures in The Bible, so I was able to catch on to who was being described right away. I like stories like this that take real Biblical stories and figures and then add a fictional twist to them. Good job with this one! :)

Enjoyable read of Paul's life from a new perspective. I really liked the ending where the MC sits at Paul's feet.
