People's Bible Notes for Acts 24:11


Ac 24:11 There are yet but twelve days. "It is not more than twelve days" (Revised Version). It would be easy for Felix to ascertain the facts, for only twelve days had passed since he returned to Judea, after many years absence. Of these twelve, the first is the day Paul meets James and the elders (Ac 21:18), the second he enters upon his vow (Ac 21:26), the seventh he is seized in the temple (Ac 21:27), the eighth tried before the Sanhedrin (Ac 22:30), the eleventh day he is delivered to Felix (Ac 23:33), and the thirteenth appears before his court.

    Verse 15~there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous. Many will have a chance to build a relationship with Jehovah God under perfect conditions.

    ACTS 24:14 but this I confess unto thee that after --THE WAY-- which they call heresy so I worship the GOD of my fathers believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets PSALM 18:21 for I have kept --THE WAYS-- of THE LORD and have not wickedly departed from my GOD PROVERBS 16:25 there is a way that seemeth right unto man but the end thereof are --THE WAYS-- of death

    Acts 24-31, scripture to learn from. Leviticus 18.
    All people are from the blood line of Adam and Eve. I want to correct something I wrote earlier; I wrote that Cain would have married his sister. But scripture does not tell us who Cain married. So, I repent of that comment.

    Felix; for at least 2 YEARS he heard the truth of God's word. He well KNEW the way of salvation - from Paul. The Bible is silent on how he turned out, but even after 2 yrs. of hearing about the sin of the love of money, covetousness - he still was hoping for money from Paul. He hadn't learned by then, so ............only God knows.
  • Irene123
    "But this I confess unto thee, that after the way they call HERESY, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things written in the Law and the Prophets."
  • BSP
    Verse 26 shows that Felix had ulterior motives.
