LESSON FOR SEPTEMBER 17
PRISONER IN THE CASTLE.
LESSON TEXT-Acts 2.
COLDEN TEXT-He Is my refuge and
my - fortress.-Ps. 91:2.
Paul was rescued from the mob by
the prompt action of Lysias, and was
saved from scourging by revealing his
Roman citizenship (21:27-22:29).
0,very true life, real social service, pa
triotisin and national righteousness
rest upon ,the value of conversion to
Christ. The fundamental. tnessage of
the Christian church must always be
regeneration. With this message Billy
Sinday is grlppliig the large cities,
and Dr. John R. Mott Is reaching the
stident life of the world.
I. Paul's Account of His Early Life
(v. 1-5). By his use of the Greek tongue
he obtained permission to deliver this
address, and by his wise use of the
Jewish language he gained the atten
tion of the excited crowd. Paul as
serted his Jewish origin. (Acts 21-39).
Tarsus, where he was born. had a uni
versity which rivaled those of Athens
and Alexandria, and Paul had probably
heard its great philosophers. Paul was
an educated man ; lie was brought up
in Jerusalem from his early boyhood
at the feet of Gamaliel its greatest
toucher. Thus his religious training
was according to the law of the fa
thers, and as "touching the righteous
ness which is of the law," he was
blaneless (Phil, 3:0). He was zealous
ror God, doing what lie thought lie
would have lilim do even when "perse
cuzed this way," tie way of forgive
ness, salvation and righteousness.
Jesus said, "I am the way." Iaul was
at this time an Instrument in the hatids
of the rulers, carrying out their piris,
but lie exceeded tleimm in his zeal for
"heI raditions of our flihers (Gal.
1:11). lie was not at all like those
P1hirisevs whom Christ condemned as
"white stpoulclers." ie wis not what
we would tern toilay. "a bad m:n."
11. Paul's Turning Point vv. (-21).
Paul seens to pick out three different
crises in this rihearsal. (1) His inter
view i IiIt Christ, when he saw Jesus
as he really was in his glory, a living
risen Savior (Cor. 9:1; 15.8). He had
positive proof of the resurrection from
the dead. This proof convicted him
of sin. He had heard Jesus call. He
had asked Jesus what he would have
lhlim to do. He was ready to obey, and
something was given him to do. The
light which le met on that journey ar
rested him in his mad course. The
voice gave hii his directions. In obedi
ence to tile command, "Arise and go,"
lie gained knowledge and skill. (2) Ie
lights upon 1is Interview with Ananias
(v. 14) where he received personal help
from an experienced Christian. In the
dmrknecss and conihlet of those three
dlays of loneliness the questions must
have been: Could he leave rank, honor,
friends? Could lie enter the service of
the despised one and suffer reprIoach,
tlainger anid (lenth? During this con
ile't he must have had before hium the
vision of what God would have him (do,
and the work for which lie chose him
(vv. 10-18). Is vision and commission
constituted a strong motive for right
dleeision. During the vision he came
lingo the light, anid confessed his faith
b~y his baptism. As a result of those
three days and his interview with
Ananias lhe came to knowv God's will
more fully. The next step was of
course (3) his public avowal (See Acts
":38; ~heb. 10:22; Rtom. 10:13; I Cor.
0 :11).. The purpose of Paul's wvihe
life and mission was changed.
Ill. Paul's Dangerous Position (vv.
20-30). Thke niob gave him audience
until his words sbout the Geontiles. His
decl aration that God had commanded
him to go upon a mission to the Gen
tiles, was an off'ense to the Jews, and
his words fell like a "spark upon an
inflammiable mass of fanaticism." They
broke out into a frenzy of excitement,
and~ made preparations to stone him.
