Shipwrecked on Malta

Our sermon text for this coming Lord’s Day will be Acts 28:1-10. This is a record of how the 276 survivors from the shipwreck interacted with the “barbarians” (KJV, ASV) from the island of Malta.

If you’re up for a little homework, here are some things to study.

1. Who, according to the first century Romans, were “barbarians”?

2. What is the Malta-Fever (aka “Maltese Fever”) and how does it apply to our text?

3. Who were the “twin gods” mentioned in verse 11?

4. Describe the religious beliefs of the natives/barbarians on Malta (hint: look at verses 4 and 6).
