LIGHTS PROMOTIONS




THE PARABLE OF THE PERSISTENT WIDOW
LUKE 18:1-8




Luke
Chapter 18

1
1 Then he told them a parable about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary. He said,
2
"There was a judge in a certain town who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
3
And a widow in that town used to come to him and say, 'Render a just decision for me against my adversary.'
4
For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought, 'While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
5
2 because this widow keeps bothering me I shall deliver a just decision for her lest she finally come and strike me.'"
6
The Lord said, "Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
7
Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them?
8
I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"



PAUL BEFORE THE SANEDRIN
ACTS 22:30 23:1-5


Acts
Chapter 23

30
Since it was brought to my attention that there will be a plot against the man, I am sending him to you at once, and have also notified his accusers to state (their case) against him before you."



Acts
Chapter 24

1
Five days later the high priest Ananias came down with some elders and an advocate, a certain Tertullus, and they presented formal charges against Paul to the governor.
2
When he was called, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying, "Since we have attained much peace through you, and reforms have been accomplished in this nation through your provident care,
3
we acknowledge this in every way and everywhere, most excellent Felix, with all gratitude.
4
But in order not to detain you further, I ask you to give us a brief hearing with your customary graciousness.
5
We found this man to be a pest; he creates dissension among Jews all over the world and is a ringleader of the sect of the Nazoreans. 1



KING AGRIPA HEARS PAUL / ST. PAUL FAITH CALL
ACTS 26:1-18


Acts
Chapter 26

1
Then Agrippa said to Paul, "You may now speak on your own behalf." So Paul stretched out his hand and began his defense.
2
1 "I count myself fortunate, King Agrippa, that I am to defend myself before you today against all the charges made against me by the Jews,
3
especially since you are an expert in all the Jewish customs and controversies. And therefore I beg you to listen patiently.
4
My manner of living from my youth, a life spent from the beginning among my people 2 and in Jerusalem, all (the) Jews know.
5
They have known about me from the start, if they are willing to testify, that I have lived my life as a Pharisee, the strictest party of our religion.
6
But now I am standing trial because of my hope in the promise made by God to our ancestors.
7
Our twelve tribes hope to attain to that promise as they fervently worship God day and night; and on account of this hope I am accused by Jews, O king.
8
Why is it thought unbelievable among you that God raises the dead?
9
I myself once thought that I had to do many things against the name of Jesus the Nazorean,
10
and I did so in Jerusalem. I imprisoned many of the holy ones with the authorization I received from the chief priests, and when they were to be put to death I cast my vote against them.
11
Many times, in synagogue after synagogue, I punished them in an attempt to force them to blaspheme; I was so enraged against them that I pursued them even to foreign cities.
12
"On one such occasion I was traveling to Damascus with the authorization and commission of the chief priests.
13
At midday, along the way, O king, I saw a light from the sky, brighter than the sun, shining around me and my traveling companions.
14
We all fell to the ground and I heard a voice saying to me in Hebrew, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? It is hard for you to kick against the goad.' 3
15
And I said, 'Who are you, sir?' And the Lord replied, 'I am Jesus whom you are persecuting.
16
Get up now, and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as a servant and witness of what you have seen (of me) and what you will be shown. 4
17
I shall deliver you from this people and from the Gentiles to whom I send you,
18
to open their eyes 5 that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may obtain forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been consecrated by faith in me.'
