Tom Schreiner on the Prophet Agabus

"Some (Wayne Grudem for example) have suggested that Agabus was mistaken for the Jews did not literally bind Paul and hand him over to the Romans. Such a judgement demands too literal a fulfillment of prophetic words. In the Lukan perspective the prophecy is fulfilled for Paul used some of the words of Agabus in describing his own arrest".
