07/04/19 – Acts 22:17-23:10, Psalm 2:1-12; Proverbs 18:13

In today’s reading I see two parallel episodes.  First, in Acts we, again, see the Sanhedrin, the rulers of the Jewish bind together to oppose and persecute Paul.

Then I read Psalm 2 and how prophetic is the inspired Word to what Paul is incurring:

Psalm 2: 

Why do the nations conspire
    and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up
    and the rulers band together
    against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
“Let us break their chains
    and throw off their shackles.”
