Acts 25:13-27

  1. What evidence is there that Festus can be commended for his fair dealings with Paul?
    Nevertheless, what major fault did he reveal (cf. Mark 15:15; Acts 24:27; 25:9)?
    Do you believe that God sometimes uses non-Christians, with their faults, for his own purposes?
    Cf. Is 45:1. Should this our attitude towards people in authority?
  2. What promises of God are now being fulfilled in Paul’s experience?
    Cf. Acts 9:15, 16; 22:15.
    What condition did Paul have to satisfy?
    How would God’s word prevent him from feeling that the last two years awaiting trial had been a waste of time?
