Kangaroo 3.0

If reading through Acts 23:12 – 22 seems like Déjà vu all over again there is a good reason for that.  The leaders of the Jews do to Paul what they did first to Jesus and then to Stephen.

It seems if they did not like what you were doing they would hire people to lie about what you had said and would then seek to kill you for the crime of blasphemy.  The common denominator that triggered this action was their perception that these men were about to impact their power and control.  Since they could not honestly refute them, they lied about what they were doing.

I am forcing myself at this point not to draw parallels from current events…

But the question I would pose both to myself and to all who seek to be apprentices of Christ, “Where have we been pulled to stretch the truth to gain favor, power, or influence?”

Something to consider…
