1 Chronicles 1:1-2:17
New Testament: Acts 23:11-35
Summary: A Plot to Kill Paul, Paul Sent to Felix the Governor
As we look into the New Testament, today, we’ll be reading from the book of Acts, chapter 23, verses 11 through 35. And we’ll be reading about opportunity. Paul’s nephew lived in the city, and by the providence of God, he discovered the Jewish plot. Only the Lord could have worked that out.
We don’t know the details. We never know what friend or relative God will use to help us. And we’ll read about authority. Paul had the protection of 472 Roman soldiers, and the entire authority of the government was behind him. The Romans did not give Paul a fair hearing, but God still use them to protect Paul and get him to Rome, because that was God’s ultimate plan, to get Paul to Rome.
