It was the name before “Christian” according to Luke. No one can say for sure where the name originated but we can suppose. This name was “in print” according to Luke, in letters to local synagogues, apparently complaining of a “new” following. This newly crucified Jewish Rabbi had apparently ruffled a few feathers among the religious right. They felt their “authority” was threatened and it is far easier to “eliminate” opposition rather than convince them to stop. And this is where Saul arrives on the scene.
