This week we took a close look at what happened when Ananias showed up at Judas’ house on Straight Street. We discussed how significant it was that Ananias greeted Saul as a brother, explained that the Jesus whom he saw en route to Damascus was the same One who sent him to restore his sight. Noting the importance of Ananias’ laying hands on Saul, we also addressed the conflation of this experience with the filling of the Holy Spirit which—more than likely—occurred at Saul’s baptism.
