Establishing chronology

Establishing Chronology

  • Comes from direct references to events that take place in certain ruler’s reigns

  • Comes from double references

    • Looking at the historical timeline we just studied in Acts tells us where Paul would have been

    • Who was with Paul, or not with Paul…

    • Was he in prison or not?

  • Comes from references plus some inferences

    • Paul writes while imprisoned…but which imprisonment?

    • Paul references expecting to see somebody soon on the next trip, probably not his final imprisonment


Putting off the old man

Putting off the Old Man

  • Who was Saul?

A radical intervention

A radical intervention

  • What was Paul’s reaction to his encounter with Christ?

  • Lessons from Acts 9

    • God can bring people to Himself exactly where He finds them

    • God may need to do something drastic in order to get our attention

    • After we are saved, we may still have some explaining to do


Humility hope for us all

Humility & Hope for Us All

  • Humility

    • We are not very much to look at without Christ in our countenance

    • We are without hope

    • We have lots of blood on our hands

  • Hope

    • The blood of Christ redeems us

    • It makes us something new

    • We have a purpose if we choose to take the blinders off

    • Our struggles in serving Him are few compared to the glory of eternity

    • He asks very little in return for what He provides
