Paul hit the ground running; preaching Jesus all over the streets of Damascus. This did not sit well with the Jewish leaders; they looked for ways to kill him. Oh, the irony: he who once killed Christians is now being hunted as one of them!
Meanwhile, as the persecution head by Paul subsided, Luke shifts his attention back to Peter who is returning to Jerusalem from Samaria. He stops in Lydda and finds a man paralyzed and bedridden, whom he healed. Strange name for a Jew, Aeneas!
The brothers at Joppa lost a dear sister, Tabitha, and sent for Peter in their sorrow. Perhaps the received more comfort than they expected: he raised her back to life! And while he was there, Peter received an unusual call...but that's for later, when he goes to see Cornelius.
