    Acts 17 is an amazing Chapter. i love the roggedity of Paul as he was not deter by any opposition to what he believed in. he was very courageous and well convinced about his believe and was able to persuade people into his conviction regardless of what the opposition was. thumbs up.

    ACTS 17:11 these were more noble than those in Thessalonica in that they received the word with all readiness of mind and searched the scriptures daily whether those things were so 1 THESSALONIANS 5:19 quench not the spirit5:20despise not prophesyings5:20prove all things hold fast that which is good MARK 10:18 and JESUS said unto him why callest thou ME good there is none good but one that is GOD

    Rise Again: TO COME BACK TO LIFE: When Jesus Rose from the Dead, He Comfirmed His
    Identity as the SON Of the Living God, and His finished work of Salvation. He Rise Again: Death could not keep Him in the Grave. He had power to lay His Life down: and Power to take it up again.

    ACTS 17:11 these were more noble than those in Thessalonica in that they received the word with all readiness of mind and searched the scriptures daily whether those things were so PSALM 11:5 THE LORD trieth the righteous but the wicked and him that loveth violence HIS soul hateh PSALM 16:1 PRESERVE ME O GOD FOR IN THEE DO I PUT MY TRUST PSALM 25:4 SHOW ME THY WAYS O LORD TEACH ME THY PATHS

    Paul preached to these in his day out of the old testament for that was all they had, the new was being wrote. He preached and taught from passages like Isaiah 53 and Psalms 22 23 concerning the death and resurrection of Christ it was all prophecy when wrote but now Paul can preach it in the past. The prophets wrote that Christ would rise (again) future but now its past tense. Fulfilled prophecy..
  • Mark
    Question on Acts 17:3. Why does it say rise "again"? The KJV and NKJV are the only translations to say "again".

    Was there a way the word "again" was used back then that allows it to fit in this sentence?

    Thanks,. Mark

    Way back then Jesus came to shack up the. Ruling jews back then just he is shacking. The world today telling his people to get ready. For the trumpet to call is people home before. The seven days of judgement
  • Lalina
    Acts 17:6 goes with Isaiah 29:15-16. Read and may the holy spirit guide you.
  • Paye Youpele
    Acts 17 vs 24 to 31. So so powerful.
  • Ray321
    Acts 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at but now commandeth all men every where to repent: They had to change there ways of believing and turn to God's ways by the Word. Change of ways means repent.
  • A disciple
    "They received the word with all readiness of mind..." READINESS; Gk prothumia; a predisposition, i.e. alacrity (eager willingness or readiness, often manifested by quick, lively action; liveliness or briskness); forwardness of mind, readiness (of mind), ready (willing) mind. This goes with Isaiah 8:20; that, not speaking according to "THIS WORD" is because of no urgency, as if up early to a task.
  • A disciple
    "But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted.." Doesn't this sound like a certain wicked spirit at work today? It is the heathen spirit of anti-Christ in all those who have set themselves to rebel against God, reject the Lord Jesus Christ, and instead worship Satan.
  • Douglas Gilbert Wells
    The Unites States of America of today sound like. Isreal of old days

    ACTS 17:11 THESE WERE MORE NOBLE THAN THOSE IN THESSALONICA IN THAT THEY RECEIVED THE WORD WITH ALL READINESS OF MIND AND SEARCHED --- THE SCRIPTURES ---DAILY WHETHER THOSE THINGS WERE SO 2 TIMOTHY 2:15 STUDY TO SHOW THYSELF APPROVED UNTO GOD A WORKMAN THAT NEEDETH NOT TO BE ASHAMED RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH 1 THESSALONIANS 5:21 PROVE ALL THINGS HOLD FAST THAT WHICH IS GOOD
  • Steve morrow
    ACTS 17:2 AND PAUL AS HIS MANNER WAS WENT IN UNTO THEM AND THREE SABBATH DAYS REASONED WITH THEM OUT OF THE SCRIPTURES 1 CORINTHIANS 10:17 FOR WE BEING MANY ARE ONE BREAD AND ONE BODY FOR WE ARE ALL PARTAKERS OF THAT ONE BREAD

  • Lilian

Thank you Jesus for your words everyday you are my life ny Jehova Jireh Shalom Praise you Jesus oh my soul thank you for your blood Jesus without you we are nothing without your blood shed for us we remain sinful but thank you for your RESURRECTION JESUS AMEN
  • Joseph from Calvary Chapel
    It's so simple. Our Heavenly Father tells The house of Israel in Amos 5:4 "Seek me and live." Cannot get easier. Ma.6:33 Seek Him first... In ALL we do,it should revolve around Pour God. Our LORD. If so we live in him and He in us Amen.
  • VO
    It is very simple, Jesus called the Jews stiffed necked they were disobedient from day one. Paul is trying his best to teach them the real truth so they won't be lost again. The word of God said, God winked at ignorance. In our world today the same thing thing is happening, the world said show me then I will believe. God said believe and I will show you things you have never seen.
  • Bruce
    Yes,every Saturday. Could have been about 14 Days.
  • Irene123
    I have a question; v. 2 - Paul reasoned with the Jews 3 Sabbath days; how long a time was 3 Sabbath days? did they come every 7 days back then, like now? I'm just curious as to how long Paul was there.
  • Irene123
    The history of the Bible is, to me, like Eze. ch. 37; searching out the history makes it come alive for me.
  • Irene123
    Dionysius the Areopagite was a judge of the Areopagus (Mars Hill) from where Paul preached, vs. 22-34. I looked up 'Dionysius', 'Areopagite', 'Areopagus' to find all this out. I love the history of the Bible. To know the history, for me, draws the characters so much closer. They're not just 'dry dust' from the past.
  • Irene123
    God bless Ar (from comments pg. 1 on 12/21/14) if he's still with us ...........; what a beautiful testimony.
  • Martha Golds
    Yes we.do. Jesus is an awesome God
    Amen!
  • Linda Qualls
    I think that we have an awesome God.
  • Nelwyn Tipton
    We are Free' in Christ Jeasus' and that we can't do anything without being in the will of God. Jesus promised us that His works are done through us.
  • Jackson Flomo
    without Jesus we can do nothing
  • Joe Free
    That verse makes me want to fall prone on my face before our Holy Creator. We are nothing without him and would be nothing without his grace.
