Paul and Silas skip town on bail


Paul and Silas skip town on bail


I was reading this today and started giggling when I realized that Paul skipped town immediately after he was bailed out of jail.

Act 17:4  Some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, along with a large group of God-fearing Greeks and quite a few prominent women.
Act 17:5  But the Jews became jealous, and gathering together some worthless men from the rabble in the marketplace, they formed a mob and set the city in an uproar. They attacked Jason’s house, trying to find Paul and Silas to bring them out to the assembly.
Act 17:6  When they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city officials, screaming, "These people who have stirred up trouble throughout the world have come here too,
Act 17:7  and Jason has welcomed them as guests! They are all acting against Caesar’s decrees, saying there is another king named Jesus!"
Act 17:8  They caused confusion among the crowd and the city officials who heard these things.
Act 17:9  After the city officials had received bail from Jason and the others, they released them.
Act 17:10  The brothers sent Paul and Silas off to Berea at once
, during the night. When they arrived, they went to the Jewish synagogue.
