Paul arrives in Jerusalem

Paul got a warm welcome in Jerusalem.  He visited James and the elders in Jerusalem.  Paul told them about his ministry among the gentiles, but they replied that there were thousands of Jewish Christians.  They had heard that Paul was telling the Jewish Christians to forget about Moses and the law.  The Jerusalem Jewish leaders knew that Paul was there.  The Jewish Christians in Jerusalem told Paul what to do.  Paul was to purify himself.  They had a letter for the gentile Christians.  Paul made a public announcement about his purification, and then the Jews from Asia showed up.  They said that Paul was against their own Jewish people, their law, and this Temple.  Paul had defiled the Temple with Trophimus the Ephesian.
