 Excavate: Acts 17
In Acts 17, we will learn how God uses difficult circumstances
to bring about great results for the kingdom of God.

The Biblical Principle is: What Satan intends as evil...God intends for good.
The Word of the Lord: Acts 17:2-5

“And Paul went in, as was his custom, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures, 3 explaining and proving that it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus, whom I proclaim to you, is the Christ.”
4 And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, as did a great many of the devout Greeks and not a few of the leading women. 5 But the Jews were jealous, and taking some wicked men of the rabble, they formed a mob, set the city in an uproar, and attacked the house of Jason, seeking to bring them out to the crowd.”
Proverbs 19:21, “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
ACTS 17:11, “Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.”
 What Are Noble People Like?

  • Noble means they are receptive.
  • Noble people are Truth-Seekers.
Acts 17:32-34, When they heard about the resurrection of the dead, some of them sneered, but others said, “We want to hear you again on this subject.” At that, Paul left the Council. 34 Some of the people became followers of Paul and believed. Among them was Dionysius, a member of the Areopagus, also a woman named Damaris, and a number of others.”

  • There are scoffers, there are delayers, and there are believers.                                             Some sneered, some said I do not want to hear more, and some believed.
