- The Jewish prosecution employed on this occasion a trained advocate, Tertullus.
What four charges are brought against Paul?
What evidence is produced in support?
- How did Paul answer these charges?
See verses 11-13; 14-16; 17, 18. Note especially:
(a) That Paul had to contend with unsupported and false accusations (verses 19-21).
He was firm but calm in refuting them. Are you, when you are in the same situation?
(b) Paul was able to give a reason for the hope that he had (verses 14-16).
(c) Paul was really on trial because he believed in the resurrection of the dead (verse 21).
Does this truth make a practical difference to your life?
