For instance, just in today’s reading alone, we are approaching the end of Acts and Paul is in the Temple doing an act of “purification.” Unbelieving Jews have charges trumped-up against him. A mob demands that Paul be killed. Yesterday we saw Paul in a “Gethsemane moment” of solitude and a “last supper” with dear disciples in Ephesus. Next, we will see a series of Jewish and Romans trials that are anything but conclusive. I have never noticed this parallelism before.
Maybe the point is that Jesus’ followers will be exactly that: followers. They will share the experiences of Jesus.
