On Sunday morning, we just started a study on “Paul’s Adventure’s in the Gospel” that will last 13 weeks. Our preacher, Phillip Mullins, is teaching the class and I wanted to pass along some of the things we talked about.
The first class was pretty much background and introductory information on the people of the day and on Paul’s background.
First of all, we addressed the idea of calling these things that happened to him “adventures” but Phillip pointed out that as a Christian, in that point in time was adventurous because of the Pharisees killing many Christians. The rewards that Paul and even all of us will reap will be eternal.
In Acts 26, Paul gives his defense before King Agrippa and begins by describing his background and his conversion.
