1 Timothy 1:13; John 16:2; Acts 3:17

13 though formerly I was a blasphemer, zpersecutor, and insolent opponent. But aI received mercy bbecause I had acted ignorantly in unbelief,

xThey will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, ythe hour is coming when zwhoever kills you will think he is offering service to God.

17 And now, brothers, I know that oyou acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers.
