The Sons of Sceva

July 21, 2013  — 

Paul has anξencounterξwith the Sons of Sceva, a group of Jewishξexorcistsξwho exploited the names of Jesus and Paul to cast out a demon. The demon recognized the name of Jesus (which is to be expected), but alo recognized the name of Paul as well. Through this story we are reminded that the spiritual world is very real, and that it interacts with our seen “physical” world in ways that might seem very strange to us. Once we believe that theξspiritualξworld plays a part in the world as we know it, our perspective on everything inherently changes.

Scripture: Acts 19:11-20
