Luke9:22it is necessary for the Son of Man to suffer many things”

Acts9:16it is necessary for him (Paul) to suffer for My name

 This striking correspondence begins a remarkable pattern of correspondences between the ministries of Jesus and Paul. Both accounts describe a “passion journey” to Jerusalem, conflicts with the Jewish religious leaders, hearings before the Sanhedrin, one of the Herods, and officials of Rome. See Charles Talbert, The Genre of Luke-Acts, p. 16.[1]
