Acts 21

November 4, 2011

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. v.13 Then Paul answered, “Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.”

    Paul didn't have to go to Jerusalem but knew that God wanted him to go. God had warn him there would be suffering.

    God always prepares us for whatever lies ahead and strengthen us to fulfill his purposes.

  3. v.21 They have been informed that you teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn away from Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children or live according to our customs…v.23Then everyone will know there is no truth in these reports about you, but that you yourself are living in obedience to the law.

    Paul was happy for the Jews to keep their customs and in fact often did so himself as long as people realize that these customs did not save them.

  5. v.20 When they heard this, they praised God. Then they said to Paul: “You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews have believed, and all of them are zealous for the law."

    It is curious that these new believers have become zealous for the law. Probably they always obeyed the law but now they do so out of delight rather than obligation.

  9. v.4 We sought out the disciples there and stayed with them seven days. Through the Spirit they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem.
