Acts 14:19-20
19And Jews from Antioch and Iconium came there, who, having persuaded the people, and having stoned Paul, they drew him out of the city, supposing him to have died. 20But the disciples surrounding him, he rose up and came into the city. And the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.

Insights
  • Paul was stoned and left for dead and the disciples gathered around him and he arose. This sounds like a raising from the dead, if you suppose that Paul was just seriously wounded, scripture says, "the next day he left with Barnabas for Derbe". Therefore, some form of healing had to be done!
  • After reading of all that Paul endured, shipwrecks, beatings, stoning, having to flee cities, prisons, even having people following him, so they could further persecute him. How can anyone believe that Paul's thorn in the flesh was anything other than all the trials and persecutions he had to endure.
  • FYI - This was during Paul's first missionary journey, with Barnabas, Acts 13:1 .
