Who was the Apostle Paul?

A commentary on the book of Acts

Dr. Adam Bradford

A verse by verse commentary on Acts as a Roman legal document providing the background to how a good Jewish Temple scholar got into such difficulties with his fellow Jews that he was awaiting trial for his life before Nero's court in Rome.

It explains exactly who Theophilus was from a Roman perspective, who Paul was from a Jewish perspective and how his legal training and Temple scholarship meant that he was ideally placed to put Jesus' message into a Roman accessible format.

It reveals what it was that ensured Paul's acquittal, and how he used his extensive Sanhedrin experience against his former colleagues.
