A Conspiracy to Kill Paul

Series: Activities of the Apostles

Bible Reference: Acts 23:12-35

Discussion Questions: 

  1. How zealous were the Jews in planning to silence Paul?  Was this a plot of just one or two madmen?  Do  you suppose they eventually broke their vow?
  2. Was Paul able to relate to this level of zeal?  If so, how?
  3. Who all was in on this plot?  Does this seem desperate?  Why not just refute Paul with their law at customs and prove Paul guilty?
  4. Who might we say is a hero in this story?
  5. Why did the chief captain want to keep his knowledge a secret?  How many men did he make ready?
  6. Where did they send Paul?
  7. Does Claudius Lysias, the chief captain, recount the previous events accurately in his letter to Governor Felix?  What specifically is left out, and why?
  8. Who else was the captain sending to Felix?
  9. What province was Paul from?  What city did he say he was born in?
  10. Did they judge Paul upon his arrival to the governor?  How does this play into God's greater plan for Paul's testimony for Christ?
