Read Acts 22 today.

Acts 22:17-26 NLT17] “After I returned to Jerusalem, I was praying in the Temple and fell into a trance. [18] I saw a vision of Jesus saying to me, ‘Hurry! Leave Jerusalem, for the people here won’t accept your testimony about me.’
[19] “‘But Lord,’ I argued, ‘they certainly know that in every synagogue I imprisoned and beat those who believed in you. [20] And I was in complete agreement when your witness Stephen was killed. I stood by and kept the coats they took off when they stoned him.’
[21] “But the Lord said to me, ‘Go, for I will send you far away to the Gentiles!’”
[22] The crowd listened until Paul said that word. Then they all began to shout, “Away with such a fellow! He isn’t fit to live!” [23] They yelled, threw off their coats, and tossed handfuls of dust into the air.
[24] The commander brought Paul inside and ordered him lashed with whips to make him confess his crime. He wanted to find out why the crowd had become so furious. [25] When they tied Paul down to lash him, Paul said to the officer standing there, “Is it legal for you to whip a Roman citizen who hasn’t even been tried?” [26] When the officer heard this, he went to the commander and asked, “What are you doing? This man is a Roman citizen!”
This chapter includes part of the story of Paul’s return to Jerusalem. He was explaining what had happened to him to the crowd. They were okay with what he was saying until he reached the point of being sent to the Gentiles. The boundary between the Jews and the Gentiles was a hard boundary. There was a big difference between being a Jew and a Gentile. The rules were different.
The Roman soldiers brought Paul inside. They were preparing to beat him in order to force him to confess. When Paul revealed he was a Roman citizen. The boundary between a Roman citizen and a non-citizen was a hard boundary. There was a big difference between being a Roman citizen and a non-citizen. The rules were different.
One of the things Jesus did was break down the boundaries. Paul understood this and spent his ministry working to help other people understand it also. What boundaries exist between people you know? What might be done to break down some of those boundaries?
