Acts of the Apostles

1. Multiple choice: Paul encountered hostile Jews in Jerusalem at the close of his third missionary journey. They were especially angry at Paul because they thought he had brought a Gentile into the temple with him. Who was this man? (a) Tychicus; (b) Trophimus; or (c) Ttoas.

2. Who was mistakenly identified by a Roman commander as an Egyptian insurrectionist who led four thousand assassins out into the wilderness? (a) Peter; (b) Judas Iscariot; or (c) Paul

3. Who was Paul's teacher in his instruction in Judaism? (a) Caiaphas; (b) Gamaliel; or (c) Shammai.

1. (b) Trophimus (Acts 21:28, 29). Trophimus was a Gentile and had been with Paul , but Paul had not taken him into the temple.
2. (c) Paul (Acts 21:37-39). Paul set the commander straight by speaking to him in Greek.
3. (b) Gamaliel (Acts 22:3).Gamaliel was held in such high honor as a teacher that he was called "Rabban"  ("Our Teacher"), a higher title than "Rabbi" ("My Teacher").
