Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    But when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat, and fastened on his hand. So when the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, “No doubt this man is a _______, whom, though he has escaped the sea, yet justice does not allow to live.” -Acts 28:3-4, NKJV

    • A.

      Murderer

    • B.

      Prophet

    • C.

      Teacher

    Correct Answer
    A. Murderer
    Explanation
    The natives assumed that Paul was a murderer because they believed that even though he had survived the shipwreck, justice would not allow him to live. This suggests that they believed in some form of divine retribution or karma, where someone who had committed a serious crime like murder would eventually face punishment. Therefore, they concluded that the snake bite was a form of divine justice for his alleged crimes.
