Scripture: Acts 21:27-36

After agreeing to the Elders’ request to join four Jewish Christians in completing an OT Nazarite purification, for the purpose of calming irate Jews in Jerusalem, a riot was instigated in the Temple courts by some Jews from Asia, who shouted accusations about Paul, alleging Paul was guilty of various heresies. They grabbed Paul, dragged him out of the Temple court, and began beating him, intending to kill him. Paul was rescued by a Roman Commander and his troops, who carried him to safety to the Roman fort next door to the Temple.
