Acts 21-23

Paul's journey to Jerusalem 
  • At each stop in Tyre and Ptolemais, Paul stayed to teach to the people and implore his brothers and sisters in Christ to remain steadfast. At the end of each stay, Paul prayed with them before heading off again.
  • Agabus prophesied about Paul's imprisonment in Jerusalem.
  • Paul's believers begged him not to go to Jerusalem.
  • Paul responds by saying, "Why all this weeping? You are breaking my heart! For I am ready not only to be jailed at Jerusalem but also to die for the sake of the Lord Jesus."
  • Paul is arrested and asks to speak to the crowd.
  • Paul tells the crowd that he is a Jew from Tarsus and that he was educated under Gamaliel. He continued his story of being struck down and blinded by Jesus, regaining his sight when Ananias spoke to him.
  • When Paul said that Jesus said, "Leave Jerusalem, for I will send you far away to the Gentiles," the crowd began to shout Kill him! He isn't fit to live!
  • Paul is brought before the high council of Pharisees and Sadducees and was able to confuse them when he said that he (Paul) was a Pharisee. Paul knew that the Sadducees only adhered to Genesis through Deuteronomy.
  • Paul could see the mixture of the two and knew that one wouldn't agree with the other on certain points.
  • God will aid us when we are under fire for our faith.
  • A plot was set against Paul but his nephew overheard the plot and was sent to tell warn the commander.
  • The commander placed Paul under his own custody and wrote a letter to Governor Felix about what had happened so far.
