6 But when Paul perceiued that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, hee cryed out in the Councill, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the sonne of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead, I am called in question.
9 And there arose a great cry: and the Scribes that were of the Pharisees part arose, and stroue, saying, Wee finde no euill in this man: but if a spirit or an Angel hath spoken to him, let vs not fight against God.
10 And when there arose a great dissension, the chiefe captaine fearing lest Paul should haue bene pulled in pieces of them, commanded the souldiers to goe downe, and to take him by force from among them, and to bring him into the castle.
15 Now therefore ye with the Councill, signifie to the chiefe captaine that he bring him downe vnto you to morrow, as though yee would enquire something more perfectly concerning him: and we, or euer he come neere, are ready to kill him.
21 But do not thou yeeld vnto them: for there lie in wait for him of them moe then fourtie men, which haue bound themselues with an othe, that they will neither eate nor drinke, till they haue killed him: and now are they ready, looking for a promise from thee.

Verse 11 is wonderfully re-assuring to know that God is near us all the time, so when we are working in His vineyard and doing His will. He has promised ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’. See God’s promise to Moses. ‘Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee’ (Deuteronomy 31:6). It is therefore important that we are sure we are always working according to God’s will for us, so that we can trust and resign to His care, even at such moments of distress or trial. That faith and communion with God is priceless. Paul is a good example of tenacious faith. That is what we need in order to complete this race triumphantly, and confirms Paul’s statement and urging in Romans 8:35, ‘For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord’. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Verses 38-39. God is more than able to deliver, and continues to workout His purpose.

Brenda, the way I understand it is that Paul's mother was a Jew and his father was a Greek. Thus Paul was born a Roman citizen (Greek father) and raised/educated as Jew following the Pharisee beliefs.

I didn't understand how Paul could be a Jew in Chapter 21. A Roman in Chapter 22 and a Pharisee in Chapter 23.

I think that God is so amazing. Itis amazing how the chief captain took so many soldiers to Guard Paul. It s so beautiful, especially it was during the night! Very amazing.
