This portrait shows Paul the Apostle in his later years, using his time in prison to write to the early Saints. As happened for Joseph Smith, Paul’s times in prison became times of refining, which allowed him to develop his faith and influence others for good. Faithful to the end, he was focused on the eternal welfare of the Saints, ancient and modern.
