160708On the first day of the week, when we met to break bread, Paul was holding a discussion with them; since he intended to leave the next day, he continued speaking until midnight.  There were many lamps in the room upstairs where we were meeting. A young man named Eutychus, who was sitting in the window, began to sink off into a deep sleep while Paul talked still longer. Overcome by sleep, he fell to the ground three floors below and was picked up dead. But Paul went down, and bending over him took him in his arms, and said, “Do not be alarmed, for his life is in him.” Then Paul went upstairs, and after he had broken bread and eaten, he continued to converse with them until dawn; then he left. Meanwhile they had taken the boy away alive and were not a little comforted. (Acts 20:7-12, NRSV)

Paul gathered to have a discussion and knew he was leaving so he proceeded to talk all night!

And Paul spoke for so long, that he put a young man to sleep, and the young man was sitting in a window and fell out.

Paul bored a man to death with his talking! And you think your pastor talks long!

But Paul goes to the aid of the boy and does what Jesus says we will do, the miracles He did and even greater. Paul saw the life in him and woke him from his sleep. And they went back up and Paul resumed where he left off.
