When presenting his defense to King Agrippa, Paul first established common ground with his accusers by explaining that, like them, he had vehemently opposed Christ. He then explained how he was divinely transformed and how Jesus was, in fact, the fulfillment of the Messianic promises of God. Alistair Begg reminds us that just as Jesus was the hope of Israel then, He remains the hope today for all who are alienated from God.

After two years of wrongful imprisonment, Paul was brought before the new governor and visiting royalty to again face the unprovable charges of the Jewish leaders. Even in the midst of such grandeur and pageantry, Paul’s purpose was clear: rather than seizing the opportunity to defend himself, he urged all those present to trust in Jesus as Messiah and Savior. Alistair Begg uses Paul’s experience to illustrate how God can turn even the roadblocks we encounter at the hands of self-serving sinners into opportunities to display His glory and achieve His purposes.

Paul’s trial before Felix illustrates that his passion to see unbelieving people become committed followers of Jesus Christ surpassed even his longing for freedom. Alistair Begg walks us through the charges of the high priest and Paul’s defense, noting the skillful way Paul used this as an opportunity to, once again, share the Gospel.

As Paul was unjustly detained in jail, the plot to kill him was thwarted by Paul’s young nephew, a courteous commander, and obedient troops. Alistair Begg helps us step back from the unfolding drama of Acts 23:12-35 to view it from the Christian perspective so that we may see God’s sovereign plan being played out through simple, ordinary means and unnamed, ordinary people.

Paul’s appearance before the Sanhedrin provides a glimpse of the ordinariness of the extraordinary apostle Paul. Alistair Begg traces the thread that shows how God worked in all the details of Paul’s life, including violence, hostility, regrets, and disappointments, and reminds us that God continues to work out His purpose for each of us through the good, bad, and ordinary events of our lives.
