Acts 24:17-21

17 “After an absence of several years, I came to Jerusalem to bring my people gifts for the poor and to present offerings. 18 I was ceremonially clean when they found me in the temple courts doing this. There was no crowd with me, nor was I involved in any disturbance. 19 But there are some Jews from the province of Asia, who ought to be here before you and bring charges if they have anything against me. 20 Or these who are here should state what crime they found in me when I stood before the Sanhedrin— 21 unless it was this one thing I shouted as I stood in their presence: ‘It is concerning the resurrection of the dead that I am on trial before you today.’”

One response to “Acts 24:17-21

  1. There is a stark difference between this scene and the scene of our accuser before God. Paul was innocent, and had no accusers, yet he was captive and before this man.

    I am guilty, and have a articulate accuser, yet I am innocent before God because of the work of Jesus. His sacrifice, and God’s plan, trumps my horrid sin and the plan of the evil one to condemn me.
