052301 confrontation and consolation .. Recorded Oct 06 1974 Image

23:01 .. Paul .. looking intently at the council .. said . . . brethren .. I have lived my life with a perfectly good conscience before God up to this day
23:02 .. the high priest Ananias commanded those standing beside him to strike him on the mouth
23:03 .. then Paul said to him . . . God is going to strike you .. you whitewashed wall .. do you sit to try me according to the Law ..
......... and in violation of the Law order me to be struck
23:04 .. but the bystanders said . . . do you revile God’s high priest
23:05 .. and Paul said . . . I was not aware .. brethren .. that he was high priest .. for it is written . . . you shall not speak evil of a ruler of your people
23:06 .. but perceiving that one group were Sadducees and the other Pharisees .. Paul began crying out in the council . . . brethren .. I am a Pharisee ..
......... a son of Pharisees .. I am on trial for the hope and resurrection of the dead
23:07 .. as he said this .. there occurred a dissension between the Pharisees and Sadducees .. and the assembly was divided
23:08 .. for the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection .. nor an angel .. nor a spirit .. but the Pharisees acknowledge them all
23:09 .. and there occurred a great uproar .. and some of the scribes of the Pharisaic party stood up and began to argue heatedly .. saying . . .
......... we find nothing wrong with this man .. suppose a spirit or an angel has spoken to him
23:10 .. and as a great dissension was developing .. the commander was afraid Paul would be torn to pieces by them and ordered the troops to go down and take
......... him away from them by force .. and bring him into the barracks
23:11 .. but on the night immediately following .. the Lord stood at his side and said . . . take courage ..
......... for as you have solemnly witnessed to my cause at Jerusalem .. so you must witness at Rome also

.................. a conspiracy to kill Paul

052302 providential protection .. Recorded Oct 13 1974 Image

23:12 .. when it was day .. the Jews formed a conspiracy and bound themselves under an oath ..
......... saying that they would neither eat nor drink until they had killed Paul
23:13 .. there were more than forty who formed this plot
23:14 .. they came to the chief priests and the elders and said . . . we have abound ourselves under a solemn
......... oath to taste nothing until we have killed Paul
23:15 .. now therefore .. you and the council notify the commander to bring him down to you .. as though you were going to determine his case by a
......... more thorough investigation .. and we for our part are ready to slay him before he comes near the place
23:16 .. but the son of Paul’s sister heard of their ambush .. and he came and entered the barracks and told Paul
23:17 .. Paul called one of the centurions to him and said . . . Lead this young man to the commander .. for he has something to report to him
23:18 .. so he took him and led him to the commander and said . . . Paul the prisoner called me to him and asked me to lead this young
......... man to you since he has something to tell you
23:19 .. the commander took him by the hand and stepping aside .. began to inquire of him privately . . .
......... what is it that you have to report to me
23:20 .. and he said . . . the Jews have agreed to ask you to bring Paul down tomorrow to the Council ..
......... as though they were going to inquire somewhat more thoroughly about him
23:21 .. so do not listen to them .. for more than forty of them are lying in wait for him who have bound themselves under
......... a curse not to eat or drink until they slay him .. and now they are ready and waiting for the promise from you
23:22 .. so the commander let the young man go .. instructing him . . . tell no one that you have notified me of these things

.................. Paul moved to Caesarea

23:23 .. and he called to him two of the centurions and said . . . get two hundred soldiers ready by the third hour of the night to proceed to Caesarea ..
......... with seventy horsemen and two hundred spearmen
23:24 .. they were also to provide mounts to put Paul on and bring him safely to Felix the governor
23:25 .. and he wrote a letter having this form
23:26 .. Claudius Lysias .. to the amost excellent governor Felix .. greetings
23:27 .. when this man was arrested by the Jews and was about to be slain by them .. I came up to them with the troops and rescued him ..
......... having learned that he was a Roman
23:28 .. and wanting to ascertain the charge for which they were accusing him .. I brought him down to their council
23:29 .. and I found him to be accused over aquestions about their Law .. but under no accusation deserving death or imprisonment
23:30 .. when I was informed that there would be a plot against the man .. I sent him to you at once ..
......... also instructing his accusers to bring charges against him before you
23:31 .. so the soldiers .. in accordance with their orders .. took Paul and brought him by night to Antipatris
23:32 .. but the next day .. leaving the horsemen to go on with him .. they returned to the barracks
23:33 .. when these had come to Caesarea and delivered the letter to the governor .. they also presented Paul to him
23:34 .. when he had read it .. he asked from what province he was .. and when he learned that he was from Cilicia
23:35 .. he said . . . I will give you a hearing after your accusers arrive also .. giving orders for him to be kept in Herod’s Praetorium

Many are the troubles of the righteous .. but some way or other .. the Lord delivereth them out of them all .. God is able to bring the hidden things to light and make conspirators’ own tongues betray them .. and above all to make the persecutions of his servants to turn to the wider spread of the Gospel . . . . It is the will of Christ that his servants should often suffer with him .. but in their trials he would have them to be “cheerful” and in the consciousness of his presence .. how can one be otherwise .. If he is with us .. all secular events will be ordered to give opportunity to witness for Christ
