Paul before Festus and King Agripps -- Acts 25 and 26

Even thought there was no lesson plan, we did actually talk about Paul and Felix (Acts 24) last Wednesday night. Tomorrow morning we'll talk about Paul before Festus and Agrippa. The class will be spent mostly in reading chapters 25 and 26. I will make some brief comments before the reading so they'll know who Festus and Agrippa are. I hope they will recognize our reading chapter 26. It is Paul's description of his conversion.

For various reasons, the attendance of our regular students in class has been spasmodic. I don't if we've had a full class more than twice this quarter. Because of this the memory work is coming along a little slower than usual. I hope to give a little pep talk tomorrow and encourage them to work on one at a time. I want everyone to at least have one thing memorized. I know that they are all becoming very familiar with all of the passages and lists to memorize. That's a good thing too.

The visitors visitors that come, are there most of the time. They are all so eager. I don't think most of them (there are about 6 that come and 4 of them are very regular in attendance) have ever heard much of the Bible at all. They just soak it all in.

My lesson plan:

Time at Stations: Work on stations before class and for the first 5 or 10 minutes.

Acts cards -- Review all of the Acts cards introducing Acts 25 and 26

Today's lesson: Briefly tell the story and give them specific people and events to listen for in the reading. Read Acts 25 and 26

Project Folders: If there's time read together The Roll Call of Faith.
