Summary: Paul testifies before the actual Jewish Council, which goes about as well as one can expect. He has to be dragged from there by the Roman guard and snuck away by them to a nearby governor when a few dozen men make a pact to kill Paul.
Response: Paul's testimony, unlike other times, barely gets one sentence in before it is interrupted and ended. But he made it count. I pray that my talking (mostly with students at the moment) really does show the Christ in me.
