Message  Admin le Jeu 12 Avr - 2:24 The Jews decided to kill Paul
The chief priests and rulers were moved with hatred against Paul, as they witnessed the
effect of the relation of his experience. They saw that he boldly preached Jesus, and wrought
miracles in his name, and that multitudes listened to him, and turned from their traditions, and
looked upon them as being the murderers of the Son of God. Their anger was kindled, and they
assembled to consult as to what was best to be done to put down the excitement. They agreed that
the only safe course for them was to put Paul to death. But God knew of their intention, and angels
were commissioned to guard him, that he might live to fulfill his mission, and to suffer for the name
of Jesus.
Paul was informed that the Jews were seeking his life. Satan led the unbelieving Jews to
watch the gates of Damascus day and night, that as Paul should pass out of the gates; they might
immediately kill him. But the disciples in the night let him down by the wall in a basket. Here the
Jews were made ashamed of their failure, and Satan's object was defeated. And Paul went to
Jerusalem to join himself to the disciples; but they were all afraid of him. They could not believe
that he was a disciple. His life had been hunted by the Jews in Damascus, and his own brethren
would not receive him; but Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto
them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had preached boldly at Damascus in the
name of Jesus.
