07/05/19 – Acts 23:11-35; Psalm 3:1-8; Proverbs 18:14-15
Doesn’t the episode of the plot to kill Paul and his being escorted by Roman soldiers to Governor Feliz read like a Hollywood script? What has always impressed me was the strength of the force accompanying Paul — 200 soldiers; 70 horseman; and 200 spearmen. I would think that 470 men could provide a suitable escort!
And another thought for today — just as we have seen throughout scripture the Lord’s plan includes using an enemy of the nation of Israel (Rome.) As Artie has preached, the Lord’s “Big Story” will not be contained.
