You guys will stop at nothing to bring us into the fold, won't you?

Very few historians dispute the existence of the apostle Paul.

He is "the apostle Paul" to make it clear to the reader who is being discussed. He is "the apostle Paul" (as opposed to "the Apostle Paul") to make it clear that the writer is not a Christian.

Also, I think Paul's time was still the most vicious persecution that Christians endured from non-Christians. Shortly after that, the Christians became the most vicious body of persecutors in history.
