COURAGE IN THE CROSSHAIRS
Part 45: Acts 22:30-23:35. Two major events dominate the 23rd chapter of the Book of Acts, each of which threatened Paul’s life — the Jewish Council (23:1-10) and the Jewish Conspiracy (23:11-35). But it is a single verse between these two events that shapes our understanding of the entire chapter. For while the threats against his life were all around him — Paul is comforted by the presence and promise of Jesus.
