Scripture: Acts 22:30-23:11

Paul returns to a second, volatile hearing before the Sanhedrin at the request of the Roman tribune, which leads to a sharp confrontation with the high priest before it descends into a violent dispute about the resurrection of the dead, spirits, and angels between the Pharisee and Sadducee factions. This leads the tribune to have soldiers remove Paul for his safety. That night, Paul receives a vision where the Lord stands by him and tells him to take courage because Paul is going to testify about Him even in Rome. This challenging passage has tremendous application for us today, helping us understand what Christ-fueled courage looks like, even in the midst of serious adversity.
