    V. 2 - Paul spoke truth in v. 1; in v. 2 Ananias commanded Paul to be sote on the mouth, which God stopped. When someone witnesses, in person, by letter, by phone, by PC, - it is wrong to 'smite' them by getting indignant, angry, and saying they are fools, ignorant, etc. In Pro. it says a 'soft' answer, in Isa., Jer.? it says, "Come now, let us reason together, .....

    To Ade - Paul was "a new creature in Christ". Read the WHOLE book of Acts.

    I am not sure of Paul's response, according to verses 3 and 5 could it be sarcasm or he was trying to be smart with words.

    branda. This is in addition to my other comment. Paul was of the tribe of Benjamin and of the town of Giscalis in Judea and When Rome took Giscalis to war, Paul then moved to Tarsus and THEN he went to study under the feet of Gamaliel in Jerusalem. Sorry. I had to correct my error. I had left out the part about Tarsus.

    Brenda, when it states a Jew it means that they lived in Judea, it has nothing to do with ones heritage. Like how someone from Texas is called a Texan. Paul was not a jew in the sense of how Jews are today. People were called jews because they lived or once lived in Judea. It doesn 't mean that they are of the Tribe of Judah. I think Paul himself a Pharisee in Chapter 23 to start a fight among the Pharisees and sadducees. It turned the enemy of Paul against one another. Pauls father was a Roman therefore it made Paul one too but Paul was of the Tribe of Benjamin. See Romans 11 11 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. He was of the tribe of Benjamin Benjamite and from the town of Giscalis in Judea which made him a "jew " because of where he lived. Being called a jew had to do with where one lived Judea . From there Paul moved to Jerusalem to study under the feet of Gamaliel.
