Acts 26. Such a worthy read!
If you are short on time at this page opening let us concentrate on just this portion.
A little background, Paul is in Rome, in chains, and appearing before King Agrippa, Bernice (said to be Agrippa’s sister/lover) and Fetus the Governor. Paul is giving testimony as to his conversion.
Acts 26: 15 “Then I said, ‘Who are you, Lord?’
“And the Lord said, ‘I am Yeshua—whom you are persecuting. 16 But get up, and stand on your feet. For I have appeared to you for this purpose—to appoint you as a servant and witness to the things you have seen as well as to the things I will yet reveal to you. 17 I will rescue you from your own people, and from the Gentiles to whom I am sending you, 18 to open their eyes—so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of satan to God, that they may receive release from sins as well as a place among those who are made holy through trusting in Me.’
19 “Therefore, O King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision. 20 Rather, I kept declaring—first to those in Damascus, and then Jerusalem and throughout all the region of Judea, and also the Gentiles—that they should repent and turn to God, performing deeds consistent with that repentance. source
Verse 18 in particular. What do you see in this one verse packed with so much Gospel?
