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