People's Bible Notes for Acts 24:6


Ac 24:6 Who also hath gone about to profane the temple. This false charge is repeated, because this was the cry when Paul was seized (Ac 21:28). Note that there are three charges: (1) That Paul was the author of sedition; (2) preached an unlawful religion (Ac 24:5); (3) profaned the temple. The penalty of the last by Jewish law was death, and the Romans usually permitted it to be enforced. Whom we took, and would have judged. This part of the sixth verse, all of the seventh, and the first clause of the eighth, are not found in the Revised Version, or the best MSS.

    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.
