    Sacred Sunday~Acts#26/Paul tries to convert Agrippa!

    in Paranormal


    Paul Before King Agrippa Acts Chap. #26


    When King Agrippa tells Paul to go ahead and talk, he does. Oh, he does.

    Paul starts by sucking up to Agrippa a bit (not a bad idea). The king knows about Jewish customs and he should know that Paul has lived a good Jewish life. He even persecuted Christians for their crazy, wacky beliefs. Oh, Paul.

    Everything changed one day when he was on his way to Damascus and… well, you know the rest of that story.

    After his conversion, Paul explains that he roamed all over the place spreading the good word about Jesus.

    That's why the Jewish authorities had him arrested even though he didn't even do anything wrong. He's only been talking about Jesus this whole time. The same Jesus who Jewish prophets and scripture predicted would come. So what's so terrible and anti-Jewish about that?


    Don't You Want To Convert?


    Festus tells Paul that he sounds nuttier than a fruitcake.

    But Paul says he's not mental, and he asks King Agrippa if he believes in the Jewish prophets.

    Geez, trying to convert me to Christianity already? Agrippa asks. At least buy a guy a drink first, Paul.

    Paul says that he hopes everyone will come to believe in Jesus and to be like him—um, except for the chains he's wearing right now.

    Those people could do without.

    Agrippa has heard enough. When he leaves with Festus, he tells him that he can see Paul hasn't done anything wrong. Too bad he had to go and appeal to the emperor. Otherwise they could have let him go free today. Major bummer.

  • I Saw A Light From Heaven - A Study of Acts 26.

    in Christianity

    12 “On one of these journeys I was going to Damascus with the authority and commission of the chief priests. 13 About noon, King Agrippa, as I was on the road, I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, blazing around me and my companions. 14 We all fell to the ground, and I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic,[a] ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’


    15 “Then I asked, ‘Who are you, Lord?’


    “ ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,’ the Lord replied. 16 ‘Now get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen and will see of me. 17 I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them 18 to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

    Sacred Sunday~Acts 25/Paul in court. Agrippa listens.

    in Paranormal

    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 25.



    As soon as Festus takes charge, he makes a little trip to Jerusalem. The Jewish authorities there chew his ear off about Paul.
    The religious authorities want Paul transferred back to Jerusalem (where they can finish up their murder/death/kill plot). We're guessing they gave up on the whole not-eating-until-Paul-is-dead thing.
    But Festus is all like, No, come to Caesarea and we'll totally do a trial. Dude, we just did that two years ago. Roman bureaucracy is the worst.
    About a week and a half later, everyone is back in Caesarea and it's trial time.
    The Jewish guys from Jerusalem say a bunch of completely untrue stuff about Paul. Typical.
    Then it's Paul's turn. His defense: not guilty.
    Festus says that since it sounds like they're all disputing over Jewish religious stuff, maybe Paul should just head down to Jerusalem and face trial there (maybe then the council members can kill Paul and Festus can cross one thing off his to-do list).
    But Paul says he's appealing to the emperor's tribunal in Rome. Darn. He's headed up to the highest court in the land. He hasn't done anything wrong to the Jewish people, so why should they try him? To the emperor it is!

    Then Agrippa said to Paul, “You are permitted to speak for yourself.” So Paul stretched out his hand and answered for himself: “I think myself happy, King Agrippa, because today I shall answer for myself before you concerning all the things of which I am accused by the Jews . . .
