Acts 25:1-5

Three days after arriving in the province, Festus went up from Caesarea to Jerusalem, where the chief priests and the Jewish leaders appeared before him and presented the charges against Paul. They requested Festus, as a favor to them, to have Paul transferred to Jerusalem, for they were preparing an ambush to kill him along the way. Festus answered, “Paul is being held at Caesarea, and I myself am going there soon. Let some of your leaders come with me, and if the man has done anything wrong, they can press charges against him there.”

One response to “Acts 25:1-5

  1. They had no confidence in the judicial system in which he was held, because they knew their accusations were false. They were hoping to ambush him and murder him.

    Not only were they fighting the Roman empire, they were battling God’s will and design. they had no chance to succeed because their motives were rooted in sin and they were against God.

    Ever feel like you are beating your head against a wall in your ministry or religious convictions? Make sure you are grounded in God’s word and that you are confident that you are aligned with His plan and purpose.
