Acts 22:24  The chief captain commanded him to be brought into the castle, and bade that he should be examined by scourging; that he might know wherefore they cried so against him.

They bring Paul into the castle. They are going to question him. They are going to whip him to get the truth out of him.

The amazing thing is that Paul had this sort of thing happen to him regularly. This time he will use legal means to get out of the whipping. Many other times he basically said, bring it on!

Today the church regularly uses every means possible to not get into trouble for the gospel. We are not willing to hazard our lives for the cause of Christ!
