“Saying, This fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law.”
King James Version (KJV)
Ac 18:13 This [fellow] persuadeth . . . contrary to the law. Their charge was that Paul sought to persuade men to worship contrary to the Roman law; that is, he preached a new and unlawful religion. Besides the state religion, Rome recognized various others, among them Judaism. These Jews attempted to show that Paul's gospel was not Judaism.
