They spoke the word of God (Acts 16:32)

“They spoke

The word of God

To him

And to all

Who were in his house.”

καὶ ἐλάλησαν αὐτῷ τὸν λόγον τοῦ Θεοῦ σὺν πᾶσιν τοῖς ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ αὐτοῦ.

The author of Acts indicated that Paul and Silas spoke (καὶ ἐλάλησαν) the word of God (τὸν λόγον τοῦ Θεοῦ) to him (αὐτῷ) and to all (σὺν πᾶσιν) who were in his house (ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ αὐτοῦ).  All at once the whole family of this jailer showed up in the middle of the night to listen to the word of God.  Paul and Silas explained the role of Jesus as a messianic savior, the Christ, based on the Jewish Bible, the word of God.  It is not clear what connection this jailer had with Judaism before this event.  How familiar were you with Scripture before you became a Christian?
