Acts 27

Reading for Monday, May 14: Acts 27

We have an expert on Acts 27 in our midst, so I’m going to defer some of the details of this chapter to our friend, John Harkins. John, weigh in here and tell us what we need to know about Paul’s shipwreck.

All I want to point out is the connection in this story between deliverance and the breaking of bread and the giving of thanks. v35, “And when he had said these things, he took bread, and giving thanks to God in the presence of all he broke it and began to eat.” As we will see at the end of the chapter, Paul and the crew will survive this harrowing episode. But in the middle of the story, there is giving thanks. What a fitting image to describe our own existence: awaiting God’s ultimate salvation, yet grateful for all He’s already done.
