This paper was written for a History Of The Old Testamnet class and deals with Acts 9 Versus 1 through 31 The first part of the paper are observationsinterpretations of the versus the second part deals with one sentence summarys of verse blocks Finally there answers to questions dealing with understanding and interpritation of the text Acts 9 Observations 1Verses 1 2 discuss Sauls persecution of the Lord and his people which simply makes me chuckle that anyone would take on the power of the Lord or his protected people and followers 2The phrase open mouth insert foot comes to mind throughout verses 3-6 because Acts opens with Saul making threats of slaughtering the Lords followers and now hes on his knees hearing a voice and yet seeing no physical body 3I cant even begin to imagine what it would be like to close your eyes one instant and open them the next and still not be able to see I dont think Id be able to accept that my eyes were actually open 4I also cant imagine what it would be like to go three days without either food or water Ive tried fasting before and I can usually barley make it 24 hours with drinking water much less 72 without consuming anything 5I have always found it interesting how the Lord chooses the people he does to do his bidding In this case hes not only choosing a disciple of the Lord that Saul was making threats to slaughter but Jesus chooses a disciple that knows of Sauls reputation Thus the Lord is not only sending to Saul someone that he was to hate but someone who is already fearful of Saul because of the stories For lack of a better phrase Jesus is simply killing two birds with one stone hes teaching Saul about the truth and power of his existence while also humbling
