Defense Before the Mob (Acts 21:37—22:21)

What's a Jewish Christian to do? He feels very comfortable in his new faith with its Old Testament roots. At the same time this faith has radically transformed him into a "world Christian." He is now at home in the ethnically diverse body of Christ. Misunderstandings, even opposition, are bound to arise. How do you explain that following a universal gospel does not mean surrendering one's Jewishness, especially one's piety? In Paul's defense he declares that the risen Christ is the key.
