Acts 17:4-5

4 Some of the Jews were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, as did a large number of God-fearing Greeks and quite a few prominent women.

5 But other Jews were jealous; so they rounded up some bad characters from the marketplace, formed a mob and started a riot in the city. They rushed to Jason’s house in search of Paul and Silas in order to bring them out to the crowd.[a]

One response to “Acts 17:4-5

  1. They didn’t just reject truth, they sought to cause harm and to cause damage. It was hard to defend their actions which calls into questions their motives.

    If our action don’t uplift and point people to Christ, then our motives are not Christlike and are selfish.
