Read: Acts 22:1-30
1) Rather than getting angry with the Jews Paul sees their zealousness in wanting to obey God. Do you similarly show grace and try to see past peoples’ behavior and into their hearts?
2) Paul recounts how he used to be in the position of the zealous Jews, inciting the persecution of Christians. How has God turned your life around in similar fashion?
3) Why were the Romans afraid to flog Paul?
a. Because he was protected by God
b. Because it would incite a riot
c. Because he was possessed by a demon
d. Because he was a roman citizen
The God of our fathers appointed you to know his will, to see the Righteous One and to hear a voice from his mouth; for you will be a witness for him to everyone of what you have seen and heard.
Acts 22:14-15 (ESV)
