Reflecting on Sunday – “Making Sunday Special”

1 . How was Paul initially greeted upon his arrival in Jerusalem? What was the response to his ministry review? (vv.17-20a)

2. a.) What motivated James to recommend that Paul join in the purification rites? Why do you think Paul was convinced that he should do it?

b.) From what we have already learned of Paul’s ministry in Acts, how do you know that the charges of v. 21 were untrue? (Recall also 16:1-4; 18:18)

c.) Why do you think James reiterated the Jerusalem Council decision again here (v. 25)? 

3.  What’s the main theme of this passage?
