The Nephew and Commander

From Series: For the Sake of the Gospel, Volume 1

Acts 23:12-22  (ID: 2470)

As Paul was unjustly detained in jail, a group of over forty Jewish men formed a conspiracy to kill him. Thankfully, this plot was thwarted by Paul’s young nephew, a courteous Roman commander, and a handful of obedient troops. Alistair Begg helps us step back from the unfolding drama of Acts 23 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.


A Plot to Kill Paul

12When it was day, the Jews made a plot and bound themselves by an oath neither to eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.
