Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:1 - Five days later the high priest Ananias went down to Caesarea with some of the elders and a lawyer named Tertullus, and they brought their charges against Paul before the governor.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:2 - When Paul was called in, Tertullus presented his case before Felix: “We have enjoyed a long period of peace under you, and your foresight has brought about reforms in this nation.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:3 - Everywhere and in every way, most excellent Felix, we acknowledge this with profound gratitude.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:4 - But in order not to weary you further, I would request that you be kind enough to hear us briefly.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:5 - “We have found this man to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots among the Jews all over the world. He is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:6 - and even tried to desecrate the temple; so we seized him.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:8 - By examining him yourself you will be able to learn the truth about all these charges we are bringing against him.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:9 - The other Jews joined in the accusation, asserting that these things were true.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:10 - When the governor motioned for him to speak, Paul replied: “I know that for a number of years you have been a judge over this nation; so I gladly make my defense.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:11 - You can easily verify that no more than twelve days ago I went up to Jerusalem to worship.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:12 - My accusers did not find me arguing with anyone at the temple, or stirring up a crowd in the synagogues or anywhere else in the city.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:13 - And they cannot prove to you the charges they are now making against me.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:14 - However, I admit that I worship the God of our ancestors as a follower of the Way, which they call a sect. I believe everything that is in accordance with the Law and that is written in the Prophets,

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:15 - and I have the same hope in God as these men themselves have, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:16 - So I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and man.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:17 - “After an absence of several years, I came to Jerusalem to bring my people gifts for the poor and to present offerings.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:18 - I was ceremonially clean when they found me in the temple courts doing this. There was no crowd with me, nor was I involved in any disturbance.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:19 - But there are some Jews from the province of Asia, who ought to be here before you and bring charges if they have anything against me.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:20 - Or these who are here should state what crime they found in me when I stood before the Sanhedrin—

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:21 - unless it was this one thing I shouted as I stood in their presence: ‘It is concerning the resurrection of the dead that I am on trial before you today.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:22 - Then Felix, who was well acquainted with the Way, adjourned the proceedings. “When Lysias the commander comes,” he said, “I will decide your case.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:23 - He ordered the centurion to keep Paul under guard but to give him some freedom and permit his friends to take care of his needs.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:24 - Several days later Felix came with his wife Drusilla, who was Jewish. He sent for Paul and listened to him as he spoke about faith in Christ Jesus.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:25 - As Paul talked about righteousness, self-control and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and said, “That’s enough for now! You may leave. When I find it convenient, I will send for you.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:26 - At the same time he was hoping that Paul would offer him a bribe, so he sent for him frequently and talked with him.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:27 - When two years had passed, Felix was succeeded by Porcius Festus, but because Felix wanted to grant a favor to the Jews, he left Paul in prison.
