By Don Ruhl

As Paul defended himself before the Romans who were to judge him, and the Jews who were to accuse him, he mentioned that he had something in common with the Jews,

“I have hope in God, which they themselves also accept, that there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust. This being so, I myself always strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men (Acts 24.15–16). 

Paul hoped in God for the resurrection, and so did his enemies the Jews. What the resurrection meant to Paul was that it could happen at any time. Therefore, he also strove to have a good conscience toward both God and men always.
