Acts 9:18

9:18 baptized. Paul, like all other new converts, was immediately baptized. He had probably been kneeling in Ananias’ house as Ananias put his hands on Paul to give him his commission, as it were, but Paul could not be baptized in such a position. Accordingly, he arose and went to be baptized, probably in one of the two major rivers that flow through Damascus (Abana and Pharpar). It is also noteworthy that the Apostle Paul received his commission as an apostle, not from one of the other apostles, but from the Lord Himself, through Ananias. This undermines the principle of so-called “apostolic succession.”
