Acts Chapter 16 records Paul and Silas in Phrygia, Galatia and Philippi, the conversion of Lydia and Paul and Silas in prison. The questions are designed for personal or group inductive style Bible study and discussion. 

Acts Chapter 16

For more information on the early church, see recent books on the Book Of Acts.

Paul And Silas in Phrygia, Galatia And Philippi-Acts 16:1-15:

1.  Why do you feel Paul circumcised Timothy when the letter they carried says it isn't required?

2.  What significance does Timothy's circumcision have today for the church...for people called to ministry?

3.  How do you feel the Holy Spirit kept them out of Asia? 

4.  Have you had God intervene and stop you from doing things you wanted to do?  Explain!

5.  Some people think God's Apostles always know God's will.  How long do you think Paul and Silas traveled on foot between Asia, Mysia and Troas before they finally had a clue where God wanted them to go next?

6.  Have you had situations in your life where you wanted to do God's will but didn't know where to go next?  Explain how His will was finally revealed to you.

7.  Concerning Paul's vision, does the phrase, "concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them." give you a sense that they were sure Macedonia was where God wanted them?

8.  They ended up in Philippi, can you think of any evidence from elsewhere in the Bible that it was God's will that they be there?

9.  Of all the thousands of men and women baptized, can you think of a reason the Bible mentions Lydia so prominently?

Paul And Silas In Prison-Acts 16:16-40:

1.  Why do you think a demon would want to promote the gospel (vs 17)?

2.  If even a demon and reputed fortune teller is confirming Paul's message, why would he be troubled?

3.  Have you ever witnessed someone seeming to do good work but for an evil purpose? Explain the situation and describe your reaction...did you oppose them or let them continue for the "good" they were doing?

4.  Do you feel the girl and her owners were promoting the gospel or using the gospel to promote their product...fortune telling?

5.  Paul and Silas were public ally stripped and beaten.  How do you feel this relates to the popular idea that bad things happen to you when you do something God doesn't like?

6.  Why do you think the jailer would kill himself if the prisoners had escaped?

7.  What must you do to be saved?  Did Paul give a lengthy set of instructions or a prayer that the person must repeat?

8.  Do you think the things today's Christians say you must do to be saved make it easier or harder?  Explain!

9.  What was the jailer filled with when he came to believe in God?
