Acts 13:42-45

Chapter Blog

42As Paul and Barnabas were leaving the synagogue, the people invited them to speak further about these things on the next Sabbath. 43When the congregation was dismissed, many of the Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who talked with them and urged them to continue in the grace of God.

44On the next Sabbath almost the whole city gathered to hear the word of the Lord. 45When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and talked abusively against what Paul was saying.

One response to “Acts 13:42-45

  1. Our motives have to be kingdom based and driven by truth. These religious leaders were driven by jealousy and fear of losing control. I have been around, and part of, groups that verbally abuse and criticize other ministries because of their success and new ideas. No discussions of their theology, just killing them for their methods. The Bible says that a Kingdom divided can not stand and we have to guard our hearts against these emotions.
