Search The Scriptures — Study 41 — Acts 21: 1-16

Study 41 From The Book of Acts Is: Acts 21:1-16

  1. Paul continues his journey to Jerusalem.  Follow the route of the voyage on a map.  Note, especially, the moving scene in verse 5, and the part that hospitality played (verses 4, 7, 8, 16).  What insights does this give us about the influence of a Christian home on visitors and children?
  2. How are we to understand these warnings of the Spirit? To Paul’s friends they seemed to say ‘Do not go to Jerusalem’. But, Paul himself did not so interpret them. Is the explanation that the Spirit gave clear warning of peril and suffering, and Paul’s friends in their human affection interpreted this in one way, while Paul regarded it in another and deeper way? Cf. 20:23, 24; Mt. 16:21-23.  What would your reaction have been in the same situation?
