Topic: persecution Passage: Acts 23:11-24
Some folks like to accuse the Bible as being a boring book with little action. This is of course utter nonsense and we see that again in Acts 23 when a plot develops to kill Paul by some angry unbelievers that think Paul got away with the crime of telling them about Jesus Christ. The plot has everything angry men that make a religious vow, we have crooked religious leaders and we have the invisible hand of God coming to the rescue through a boy who just happens to hear of his uncle being plotted to be murdered. At the end we have a harrowing escape. Most suspense novels have less intrigue than this.
