Acts 25:1 - 25:5

Paul Before Festus

Festus then, having arrived in the province, after three days went up to Jerusalem from Caesarea.
2 And the chief priests and the leading men of the Jews brought charges against Paul, and they were pleading with him, 3 requesting a favor against Paul, that he might have him brought to Jerusalem (while they set an ambush to kill him on the way). 4 Festus then answered that Paul was being kept in custody at Caesarea and that he himself was about to leave shortly. 5 “Therefore,” he *said, “let the influential men among you go down there with me, and if there is anything wrong about the man, let them accuse him.”
