Amazing Day at the Synagogue: Acts 13:42-43
“42) As Paul and Barnabas were going out, the people kept begging that these things might be spoken to them the next Sabbath. 43) Now when the meeting of the synagogue had broken up, many of the Jews and of the God-fearing proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, were urging them to continue in the grace of God.” Acts‬ ‭13‬:‭42‬-‭43‬
What an amazing meeting at the synagogue that day. For the first time the Bible was explained in away that made sense. The Holy Spirit was working and enlightening many hearts and minds to the gospel.
It is always a delight when people “see and understand” the gospel. Many Jews and God-fearing proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas. Their hearts were burning within them. The truth about Jesus Christ being the Messiah was planted within them. They were understanding the meaning of grace.
Jesus is not a contradiction to the Old Testament, He is the fulfillment. The Bible is just a history book until the message of the gospel is clearly presented. When the veil is taken away and the Holy Spirit turns the lights on, the Bible suddenly becomes the most amazing book in the world. (See 2 Corinthians 3:14-18)
This is one of the signs that accompanies genuine salvation. The Holy Spirit becomes the inner teacher. The Bible is transformed into the words of life, truth and freedom. It becomes manna to the soul and spirit. Show me a persons Bible and I will describe the sincerity of their walk with God!
