Acts 21:32-36

32 He at once took some officers and soldiers and ran down to the crowd. When the rioters saw the commander and his soldiers, they stopped beating Paul. 33 The commander came up and arrested him and ordered him to be bound with two chains. Then he asked who he was and what he had done. 34 Some in the crowd shouted one thing and some another, and since the commander could not get at the truth because of the uproar, he ordered that Paul be taken into the barracks. 35 When Paul reached the steps, the violence of the mob was so great he had to be carried by the soldiers. 36 The crowd that followed kept shouting, “Get rid of him!”

One response to “Acts 21:32-36

  1. Interesting system of justice they had. They arrested the one that the crowd was beating without even knowing his transgression. Within Christianity, I have been guilty of this. I have jumped to criticize or condemn others, a ministry, or a technique because “other believers” had been beating and accosting someone/something. I/we have a duty to try everything by the truth that we know from God and to use the discernment that God has given to us. I can’t tell you how many times I have been wrong in my ignorance.
