Okay... we were reading from Acts 16 during family devotions tonight and a thought struck me (not literally :).
And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed [their] stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.
And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.
All of this happens in the jail. Could the 'house' referred to be the prison? And could 'all that were in his house' be the other prisoners? They are in a prison, all of the prisoners are suddenly released, and everyone there are saved and baptized. THEN, in verse 34, the jailer took them to his house and gave them food. How could his 'house' (in reference to a family) become saved and be baptized if they weren't there?
Just a few things to think about. I would appreciate any insight from others!
