Acts 24:1-21

  1. The Jewish prosecution employed on this occasion a trained advocate, Tertullus.
    What four charges are brought against Paul?
    What evidence is produced in support?
  2. 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). Can you?
    (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?
