Acts 26:1-18 (September 15, 2019)
Paul's defense to King Agrippa includes the third retelling of his dramatic conversion on the road to Damascus in the Book of Acts. Interestingly, this time, Paul includes a famous proverbial saying from a Greek playwright bringing out the irresistibility of our calling from God.
