Seventh Week of Easter

Acts 19:1-8, Ps 68, John 16:29-33

Be courageous

The Sanhedrin is like a High Court. Paul was there because they feared him. The arresting Roman commander discovered that Paul not only spoke Greek and Hebrew but was both a Jew and a Roman citizen, which gave him rights. Then Paul attacked the head of the Sanhedrin, calling him the equivalent of a leaky home builder. And then he won over the Pharisee half of the Sanhedrin. Paul was a force to be reckoned with. His conscience was formed and clear. He knew what he was on about. Speak with Paul about how to be brave.
