Community Groups:

Read Acts 16:35-17:15 as a group.

Why does Paul refuse to leave the prison quietly? In what way might this have been a way of caring for the new Christians in Philippi?

What do Paul's actions tell us about the priority of our mission in relationship to our respect for earthly authorities?

What do the Jews in Acts 17:6 accuse Paul and his companions of? In what way does the gospel of Jesus bring disruption to the world? What should this tell us about how comfortable we should be here on earth?

What do the Bereans do in Acts 17:11? How important are the Scriptures in your Christian witness? When you share Jesus with others, are you able to do so by pointing them to the Bible? Which verses?

Read Acts 17:16-34 for next week.
