1 Corinthians 13:11

“When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.”

I would like to know when Paul considered himself to have become a man. I mean, I know about the Bar Mitzvah and all that, but I wonder if he was talking about something different, something more sudden and drastic. Something to do with his experience on the road to Damascus.

Thinking about the switch from reasoning like a child to reasoning like a man, what if it’s something much more substantial and basic?
