In the next chapter, while at Tyre for a week, the disciples kept telling Paul, “through the Holy Spirit,” not to set foot in Jerusalem. A few days later while in the house of Phillip, a prophet, Agabus, tells Paul that he will be bound and handed over to the Gentiles in Jerusalem.
So we have a situation where Paul is hearing from the Holy Spirit that he is supposed to go to Jerusalem but the disciples in Tyre and Agabus in Caesarea are telling Paul through the Holy Spirit that he should not go and he will be bound and given to the Romans.
What gives? Is this a contradiction that Luke has recorded? What is going on here?’
I can think of three or four scenarios that may describe what is going on. What do you see?
I will share some of my thoughts tomorrow, they may bleed over a couple of days, especially the application.
