Acts Chapter 22
Click on the image below to watch the video (about 7 minutes). It contains an introduction, followed by the chapter read aloud from the ESV, then the questions. The questions are repeated below as well. Once you have finished, please share your thoughts with the wider HRCC community at HRCCActsStudy
Question & things to think about from chapter 22
 
1)  Paul’s speech starts with a recounting of his persecution of the early church and then of his conversion. What do we learn about Paul from this speech? 

2)   Just before the crowd stops listening he describes a vision he had while in Jerusalem after his conversion. Is this mentioned anywhere else? Why might the author include it here, knowing that he has not mentioned it earlier in this book?
 
3) The Roman Tribune has him brought in to the barracks and is about to have him flogged when he mentions his Roman citizenship. What is it about this citizenship that saves him? How did he get it (and how was that possible)?
 
4)   Since he cannot torture the truth out of Paul, the Tribune decides to send him to the Sanhedrin. Here again, the chapter break is inconveniently placed. Without reading ahead, what might you expect to happen at this meeting?
