Welcome Church! We are here every Sunday to read the Bible, tell personal stories and pray together because when two or more are gathered.....In a non-judgemental down to earth format. God bless you every one! Today we are reading Acts Chapter 23!

The Trial Before The Council

  • Paul tells the Jewish council that he's always lived a good life and that's he's totally right with God.
  • The high priest, Ananias, orders some of the others to punch Paul in the mouth. And they do it. What a bunch of followers.
  • Paul gets angry and calls the high priest a "whitewashed wall." Burn! He also points out that it's against Jewish law to hit him. Check and mate.
  • But the council tells Paul that he has no right to insult the high priest and then Paul does a 180, agrees with them, and apologizes.
  • Hmmm. That apology might be a first for Paul.
  • Paul tells them that he himself is a Pharisee and that he's there because of the things he's been teaching about Jesus and the resurrection of the dead. That's sort of right.
  • A fight breaks out between the Pharisees and Sadducees who both have different views about the resurrection of the dead. No one can agree on anything apparently in this story. Go figure.
  • The Pharisees take Paul's side for a bit (good work, Paul), but things start to get out of control and the Romans remove Paul from the room and take him back to prison. Darn. Just when he was making some headway
