Acts 24:1-4

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. 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. Everywhere and in every way, most excellent Felix, we acknowledge this with profound gratitude. But in order not to weary you further, I would request that you be kind enough to hear us briefly.

One response to “Acts 24:1-4

  1. The high priest of God got an attorney and brought his charges against a fellow believer in the courts of the Roman occupiers. This seems so far off course to me that it is hard to defend the position that Ananias has brought himself to. Instead of defending his flock from wolves and leading them into righteousness and God’s presence, he is accusing and pursuing a man who claims to know the Messiah.

    In defending his turn and his power, Ananias has left completely his purpose and calling and has been drawn into complete deception and rendered ineffective.
