052501 Paul before Festus .. part 1 of 2 .. Recorded Nov 10 1974 Image

25:01 .. Festus then .. having arrived in the province .. three days later went up to Jerusalem from Caesarea
25:02 .. and the chief priests and the leading men of the Jews brought charges against Paul .. and they were urging him
25:03 .. requesting a concession against Paul .. that he might have him brought to Jerusalem (at the same time ..
......... setting an ambush to kill him on the way)
25:04 .. Festus then answered that Paul was being kept in custody at Caesarea and that he himself was about to leave shortly
25:05 .. therefore .. he said . . . let the influential men among you go there with me ..
......... and if there is anything wrong about the man .. let them prosecute him
25:06 .. after he had spent not more than eight or ten days among them .. he went down to Caesarea ..
......... and on the next day he took his seat on the tribunal and ordered Paul to be brought
25:07 .. after Paul arrived .. the Jews who had come down from Jerusalem stood around him ..
......... bringing many and serious charges against him which they could not prove

052502 Paul before Festus .. Part 2 of 2 .. the power of a dedicated life .. Recorded Nov 17 1974 Image

25:08 .. while Paul said in his own defense . . . I have committed no offense either against the Law of the Jews or against the temple or against Caesar
25:09 .. but Festus .. wishing to do the Jews a favor .. answered Paul and said . . .
......... are you willing to go up to Jerusalem and stand trial before me on these charges
25:10 .. but Paul said . . . I am standing before Caesar’s tribunal .. where I ought to be tried .. I have done no wrong to the Jews ..
......... as you also very well know
25:11 .. If .. then .. I am a wrongdoer and have committed anything worthy of death .. I do not refuse to die ..
......... but if none of those things is true of which these men accuse me .. no one can hand me over to them .. I appeal to Caesar
25:12 .. then when Festus had conferred with his council .. he answered . . . you have appealed to Caesar .. to Caesar you shall go

052503 Paul before Agrippa .. part 1 of 3 .. Recorded Dec 08 1974 Image

25:13 .. now when several days had elapsed .. King Agrippa and Bernice arrived at Caesarea and paid their respects to Festus
25:14 .. while they were spending many days there .. Festus laid Paul’s case before the king .. saying . . .
......... there is a man who was left as a prisoner by Felix
25:15 .. and when I was at Jerusalem .. the chief priests and the elders of the Jews brought charges against him ..
......... asking for a sentence of condemnation against him
25:16 .. I answered them that it is not the custom of the Romans to hand over any man before the accused meets his accusers face to face and has an
......... opportunity to make his defense against the charges
25:17 .. so after they had assembled here .. I did not delay .. but on the next day took my seat on the tribunal and ordered the man to be brought before me
25:18 .. when the accusers stood up .. they began bringing charges against him not of such crimes as I was expecting
25:19 .. but they simply had some apoints of disagreement with him about their own religion and about a dead man .. Jesus ..
......... whom Paul asserted to be alive
25:20 .. being at a loss how to investigate such matters .. I asked whether he was willing to go to Jerusalem and there stand trial on these matters
25:21 .. but when Paul appealed to be held in custody for the Emperor’s decision .. I ordered him to be kept in custody until I send him to Caesar
25:22 .. then Agrippa said to Festus . . . I also would like to hear the man myself .. tomorrow .. he said .. you shall hear him

.................. Paul before Agrippa

25:23 .. so .. on the next day when Agrippa came together with Bernice amid great pomp .. and entered the auditorium accompanied by the
......... commanders and the prominent men of the city .. at the command of Festus .. Paul was brought in
25:24 .. Festus said . . . king Agrippa .. and all you gentlemen here present with us ... you see this man about whom all the people of the Jews appealed to me ..
......... both at Jerusalem and here .. loudly declaring that he ought not to live any longer
25:25 .. but I found that he had committed nothing worthy of death .. and since he himself appealed to the Emperor .. I decided to send him
25:26 .. yet I have nothing definite about him to write to my lord .. therefore I have brought him before you all and especially before you .. king Agrippa ..
......... so that after the investigation has taken place .. I may have something to write
25:27 .. for it seems absurd to me in sending a prisoner .. not to indicate also the charges against him

It is nothing for the most excellent ones of the earth to have all manner of evil said against them falsely for Christ’s sake and to be represented even in courts as odious and harmful to society .. nevertheless God is able to make men’s worldly policies serve his own purpose (Psa 76:10) and when enemies think to block the gates of the Gospel .. he is able to open them wider . . . v 19 what Paul affirmed concerning Jesus Christ .. that he is alive .. is a matter of such vast importance .. that if it be not true .. we are all undone .. yet many men today treat the subject slightly as did this Roman
