Questions Covered (Time in the episode):

- 22:43 – Was the apparition that St. Paul had on the road to Damascus a private or public revelation?
- 25:38 – Do the promises of Jesus’ return (and other associated events) give us ancillary assurance that humans will not first be totally wiped out by some other disaster?
