Acts 25:1-27; 26:1-11

We are told at the end of Acts chapter 24 that Paul was under arrest by Felix for two years in Caesarea before Felix is replaced as governor by Festus. Acts chapter 25 and 26 continue this story after these two years as Festus tries to understand what to do with Paul. In today’s message from chapter 25 and the beginning of chapter 26, Festus runs his own trial to try and get to the bottom of why the Jewish leadership wants Paul dead, and is then visited by Herod Agrippa and Bernice who also want to hear Paul out. Paul begins to share his life story and testimony again, proving both his innocence to the Jew’s charges as well as sharing the gospel.
