THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES
So glad you could
join us again to share another Daily Bread. As we left off, Paul was just
brought before the council because the Jewish people in Jerusalem were upset
at his teaching of the New Testament and they wanted him to be put to death.
Paul, looking steadfast at the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived
with a clean conscience before God until this day.
PAUL SANHEDRIN STUDY ON THE PAUL SANHEDRIN STORY WITH PAUL SANHEDRIN MESSAGE
The high priest,
Ananias, ordered those who stood by Paul to slap him on the mouth. Then Paul
said to Ananias, God will slap you, you hypocrite, because you sit to judge
me after the law, and command me to be struck contrary to the law? Those who
stood by said, You dare to speak to God's high priest that way? Paul
answered, Brethren, I didn't know that he was the high priest, for it is
written, You shall not speak evil of the ruler of your people
Now, remember how
clever Paul is. When he recognized that within the council, part of them
were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men
and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee. I am called here in
question of the hope and resurrection of the dead. When he said this, a
quarrel began between the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and they were divided
because the Sadducees believe that there is no resurrection, nor angel, nor
spirit, but the Pharisees believe in these spiritual things.
There was quite a
fuss, and the scribes that belonged to the Pharisees' part arose, and
argued, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel has
spoken to him, let's not fight against God. And when a big debate ensued,
the chief captain, afraid that Paul might be torn in pieces by them,
commanded the soldiers to go down, and to take him by force from among them,
and to bring him into the castle.
PAUL SANHEDRIN LESSON WITH PAUL SANHEDRIN EXPLANATION
The next night,
the Lord stood by Paul, and said,
Be of good cheer, Paul:
for as you have testified of me in Jerusalem, so must you bear witness also
So the Lord was telling Paul not to
worry, because he still had more work to do. When it was day, certain of the
Jewish people banded together, and took an oath, saying that they wouldn't
eat or drink till they had killed Paul. There were more than forty who had
conspired this, and they came to the chief priests and elders, and said,
We've bound ourselves under a great curse, that we will eat nothing until
we've slain Paul. Now, you on the council, order the chief captain that he
bring him down to you tomorrow, as though you want to question him further,
and we'll be ready to kill him if he comes near.
nephew heard about their scheming, so he went into the castle, and told
Paul. Then Paul called one of the centurions over to him, and said, Bring
this young man to the chief captain, he has something to tell him. So he was
brought to the chief captain, and said, The Jewish people have agreed to ask
you to bring down Paul tomorrow into the council, as though you want to
speak to him, but don't listen to them because they're waiting for him, more
than forty men, who have pledged that they won't eat or drink until they've
killed him. They're just waiting for word from you.
So the chief
captain let the young man leave, and ordered him, Don't tell anyone that you
told me these things. The chief captain called two centurions and said, Get
200 soldiers ready to go to Caesarea, and
70 horsemen and 200 spearmen, at 9 p.m. Give them horses to put Paul on, and
bring him safely to Felix, the governor. And he sent this letter with him:
Greetings, from Claudius Lysias, to the most excellent governor
Felix. This man was taken by the Jewish people, and would have been
killed by them, then I came with an army and rescued him, having
understood that he was a Roman. And when I didn't know what they accused
him of, I brought him to their council, whom I assumed to be accused of
questions of their law, but to have nothing charged to him worthy of
death or of prison. When I was told that the Jewish people laid wait to
kill the man, I immediately sent him to you, and ordered his accusers
also to state before you, what they had against him. Farewell.
PAUL SANHEDRIN INFORMATION WITH PAUL SANHEDRIN MEANING
Then the soldiers,
as they were commanded, took Paul, and brought him by night to Antipatris
(which is about halfway between Jerusalem and Caesarea).
The next day they left the horsemen to continue on with Paul, and returned
to the castle. When they arrived in Caesarea
and delivered the letter to the governor, they presented Paul also before
him. When the governor had read the letter, he asked Paul what province he
was from, and when he understood that he was from Cilicia, Felix said, I
will listen to you when your accusers arrive. And he ordered that Paul be
kept in Herod's judgment hall.
When we come back,
we'll find out what happens when the people present their argument against
Paul, and how Paul responds to it, so hurry on back for the next Daily Bread.
