Abstract The story of Saul of Tarsus's switch from enthusiastic support of mainstream Judaism to joining and preaching the new messianic Judaism of the Jesus followers of his day invites probing into what the concept of phronesis meant both to Paul and to those who knew Scripture, especially the prophets. Close reading of the accounts in Acts and Philippians about his dramatic change of identity and his own self-doubts underscores the importance of understanding how the monotheizing process changes how one thinks brought Saul the student of Gamliel to become Paul the apostle of Christ and how that set the Jesus movement on a path that changed the world.
