Marcy J: Dave, you said in one Bible Session that it broke Roman law for Jews to kill someone so the Pharisees had to get Rome to kill Jesus. So when Paul was thought to be stoned to death (as in Acts 14) why was no one arrested?

Dave:¬†Great question. Stephen was murdered by several people with Paul’s approval and there is no record of anyone getting into trouble with Rome. I assume that there were no soldiers around when they did this (and probably no one would dare say anything to the authorities), plus Jesus was so popular among the Jewish people that His enemies had to get rid of Him in a way that those people would not turn against them.
