Acts 14:19-20 Paul Stoned to Death

*******

Posted under Relevant Biblical verses.

In Actuality, the Heading should read: Paul Stoned to the Point of Death. But I will let it be, as I do not want it to be too long.

***

“Some Jews came from Antioch in Pisidia and from Iconium; they won the crowd over to their side, Stoned Paul and dragged him out of the town, Thinking that he was Dead. But when the Believers gathered round him, he got up and went back into the town. The next day he and Barnabas went to Derbe.” Acts 14:19-20.

It becomes evident that Paul had not died of the Stoning. In No way is the event Celebrated by the writer of the Acts as a Resuscitation, as the Believers having Raised Paul Back to Life through prayer and intercession.

In one way, it shows Us How Sturdy Paul must have been. We might call that a minor point. But We also see that God had not intended to end Paul’s life at that time.

For-All-That, those who had attacked Paul had dragged him out of the town in the full belief that he had died by the Stoning. He had come that close to Death.
