Today I want bring attention and emphasize the features that stand out from Paul's defense. I want to highlight three functions that we should learn from in the defense of Paul The first two show us how we might should function in the midst of unnecessary attacks against our faith and the last function should help drive home how important it is to know what God has assigned us to do for His Kingdom.

Notes & Transcripts
Acts 22:17–22 NIV84
“When I returned to Jerusalem and was praying at the temple, I fell into a trance and saw the Lord speaking. ‘Quick!’ he said to me. ‘Leave Jerusalem immediately, because they will not accept your testimony about me.’ “ ‘Lord,’ I replied, ‘these men know that I went from one synagogue to another to imprison and beat those who believe in you. And when the blood of your martyr Stephen was shed, I stood there giving my approval and guarding the clothes of those who were killing him.’ “Then the Lord said to me, ‘Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.’ ” The crowd listened to Paul until he said this. Then they raised their voices and shouted, “Rid the earth of him! He’s not fit to live!”
