When Paul was in the court he said, I have lived doing what God says is right. The top priest slapped Paul’s face. And Paul said to the one who slapped him, God will smack you, you false face. You say you do right, but hitting me was bad. Paul said, I follow God the best way. I know that I will be brought back from being dead.
When Paul said this the people in the court started fighting with each other because one side thought they would come back from being dead and the other side didn’t think they would come back from being dead. So the two sides started fighting. The fight got so big that soldiers were sent to stop it before they pulled Paul to pieces.
Then the ruler in the court let Paul tell his side. Paul said, I am glad to tell my part. It was 12 days ago that I went up to Jerusalem to love God in his temple. These men didn’t find me talking to anyone in the temple or making any trouble. They can’t show you anything they said is true because I wasn’t making any trouble.
I will send you to the other people of the world to open their eyes to see God and turn them from the dark road to death to the light road to heaven: to turn them from the power of the bad one back to God; so they will be forgiven and their bad stuff washed away; and so they can be given a place and good stuff forever with the ones who believe in Me.
But God has helped me and kept me alive until today. I don’t say anything that it doesn’t say in the special writings by Moses and the other men of God that the promised One would come and take our spanking and be the first one to be raised back from being dead, and be the light to show the people the true way to God.
