Acts 14:19 – 20
Then some of the Jews came from Antioch and Iconium and won the crowd over. They stoned Paul and dragged him outside the city, thinking he was dead. But, after the disciples had gathered around him, he got up and went back into the city. The next day he and Barnabas left for Derbe.
We see Paul on the ground, looking up and beyond the men who are about to throw stones on him. Two men drag him by his red cloak. The city’s building loom over the walls and the crowd. The temple with the burning smoke from the sacrificial altar is visible in the background. A man in a white cloak deliberates with others who are behind those throwing the stones. Is he one of the Jews from Antioch and Iconium, inciting others to act violently? Is he questioning their action, as the faces of the men to whom he talks appear rougher and more likely to be part of a mob?
