Acts 25

Paul Appeals to Caesar

The chief priests try to get Paul transferred to Jerusalem because they were planning to kill him in transit. They try to charge him with a bunch of crimes but nothing will stick because they don't have proof of anything. Paul is asked if he wants to stand trial in Jerusalem, but he says he should stay where he is and be tried by Caesar's tribunal.

Paul Before Agrippa and Bernice

Festus described the situation to Agrippa and Bernice, basically saying he wasn't sure how to handle things. They said they want to talk to him directly. So Paul is brought before king Agrippa and tells the story. Basically a bunch of people want to kill Paul, but as far as Festus can tell there is no good reason for it.

Not much in this chapter. I'll say this though, I'm interested in seeing how this will play out.


  1. It is kind of a boring chapter.. Since it's been so long since the Jewish hunger strike plot, I wonder if it's the same group of guys planning to kill Paul. If not, I wonder what happened to them, or if it is the same guys and they just got hungry and decided that the hunger strike was a bad idea.

  2. I'm assuming they decided against continuing with the hunger strike at some point. But who knows, maybe they all starved.
