What would you do if you we captured, beaten and carried off to a lynching? If given the opportunity to speak, what would you say? Would you offer a defense of your actions? Try to disassemble your oppressors’ argument? Paul did none of that. Given the chance to speak to a very angry mob, the apostle told the story of how God intervened and changed his life. He told his God-story, and like many of us, that story can be the most powerful story that we can tell.
