Acts 23:9-11

There was a great uproar, and some of the teachers of the law who were Pharisees(N) stood up and argued vigorously. “We find nothing wrong with this man,”(O) they said. “What if a spirit or an angel has spoken to him?”(P) 10 The dispute became so violent that the commander was afraid Paul would be torn to pieces by them. He ordered the troops to go down and take him away from them by force and bring him into the barracks.(Q)

11 The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Take courage!(R) As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome.”(S)

One response to “Acts 23:9-11

  1. Whether by design, or by simple process, Paul cause an uproar and a division among the accusers. This caused the unbelievers to rescue him from the “religious” and bring him back to the Roman barracks.

    God spoke to and encouraged Paul, and told him that he would also testify for God before the Roman leaders in Rome. Paul was willing to go wherever and be whatever God needed him to be and God was kind in foretelling him and preparing him.
