Old Testament – 1st Kings | All Things Rabyd
One is informed by Acts that St Paul's early day stance was as "Saul, the Christian persecutor". Yet if Saul really was a vigilante for orthodox Judaism at the time of Stephen's stoning (Acts 7.58-8.3), becoming the chief persecutor of Christians, no less – one wonders just where was Saul, not long before, when a supposed radical rabbi called Jesus was stirring up whole towns and villages?

I recently started to research my mother's side of the family which has roots in Ireland. My great great great grandparents were John and Elizabeth Hand (formerly Hand). I have no dates or place of birth or death for either John or Elizabeth but do know that they were married on March 3, 1872 in the Catholic Chapel, St. Mary's Church, on Haddington Road in Dublin. The marriage certificate lists James as being of "full age" and Elizabeth being 18 which puts her date of birth in 1853 or 1854. The 1901 British Census lists James' age as 54 and if that is accurate would put his year of birth at 1846 or 1847. However, the 1871 census records his age as 32 with his year of birth as 1839. Other information on the marriage certificate - Elizabeth's father's name was John Hand (bricklayer) and James' father was named Bernard Hand (farmer). I also know that subsequent to their marriage John and Elizabeth lived on West St., Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan where they had their first child, a daughter named Mary Anne who was born on June 19, 1874. They then had a son John Hand born on September 4, 1976 in either Castleblayney or Dublin. They then emigrated from Ireland to Prestwich, England between 1876 and 1879 where my great great grandmother Elizabeth Christina Hand was born on January 8, 1879. John and Elizabeth went on to have five more sons James G., William, Francis, Herbert J. and Charles E.
I also know that at one point a nephew named James Hand lived with James and Elizabeth in Broughton, Salford, England and that the nephew was the son of Patrick and Harriet Hand who lived in Liverpool, England. I do not know if Patrick was John or Elizabeth's brother.
I would be grateful if you had some suggestions as to what my next step would be to continue the search for both John and Elizabeth's family and roots without any other pertinent information which has been made even more difficult seeing as both have the same last name.

Paul's role as religious policeman seems not to have awakened until shortly after the godman's death. But in itself this suggests Jesus of Nazareth had no great impact. After all, Saul was a contemporary of Jesus in time and place, raised in Jerusalem ("at the feet of Gamaliel" – Acts 22.3) at precisely the time the godman was overturning moneychangers in the Temple and generally provoking Pharisees and Sadducees.

But on the one hand, our age is quite simply the greatest opportunity for Christian witness since the time of Jesus and the apostles, and our response should be to seize the opportunity with bold and imaginative enterprise.

. Any intellectually honest people who care about immigrationshould be far more upset with President Obama's immigration policies than President Trump's[.] Syrian Christiansconstitute 10% of the Arabs in Syria, yet during the Obama administration, they constituted from .5% to 1% of the refugeespermitted to escape into America from Syria. It is patently obvious that Christians face far greater persecution inSyria and other Arab countries than Muslims, so the statistic described above demonstrates clear discrimination againstChristians by the Obama administration, based 100% on religion and 0% on counter-terrorism. If anything, Christians are less likely than Muslims to be members of ISIS or Muslim fundamentalists or terrorists.
