Subject/Title of Window: Jesus Meets Saul of Tarsus

Brief Description of Subject: Jesus stops Saul (later renamed Paul) on his way to Damascus to persecute Christians: “As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?’ ‘Who are you, Lord?’ Saul asked. ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,’ he replied. ‘Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.’” (Acts 9) Saul was blind and fasted for three days, and then met with Ananias.

This set of windows (0, 1, 11, 12) originally came from a church in Minnesota and were placed in the first building of the Bethesda Bible Church at 760 Lowell Street in Ypsilanti in 1968. This first church was built in 1962 and is now an apartment complex called Belfry Apartments. The construction of the current church on Huron St. began in 1989 and was completed in 1993. The window set was moved to the new building and installed above the Baptistry.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
