To read the Bible in a year, read Acts 25 on July 25, In the year of our Lord 2017

The Romans did not believe that Paul had done anything wrong, but since the Jews kept accusing him of things, the Romans went along, but they did not really know why they were going along. Therefore one Roman official said to another person with authority,
“I have nothing certain to write to my lord concerning him. Therefore I have brought him out before you, and especially before you, King Agrippa, so that after the examination has taken place I may have something to write. For it seems to me unreasonable to send a prisoner and not to specify the charges against him” (Acts 25.26–27).
Why then did they even have Paul in custody. Yes, he had appealed to Caesar, but only because he saw that as his last resort.
- If you have something against a person, can you specify the exact reasons?
- Do you enjoy controversy?
