Acts 21:18-40
(27-36) Paul Arrested in the Temple
Just as he had been warned, as soon as Paul reached Jerusalem, hateful chaos broke out on account of his appearance. When the mob of people shouted, “Away with him!” they did not want him removed from the temple and taken to prison. They wanted him removed from the earth altogether. They wanted him dead. This is similar to what the mob did to Jesus when they shouted, “Crucify Him!” Just as Christ had suffered for Paul (and for all of us), Paul was willing to suffer for Him.

Favorite verse: (19) After greeting them, he related one by one the things that God had done among the Gentiles through his ministry.
