“This man was taken of the Jews, and should have been killed of them: then came I with an army, and rescued him, having understood that he was a Roman.”
King James Version (KJV)
23:27 Having learned that he was a Roman - True; but not before he rescued him. Here he uses art.
Ac 23:27 I . . . rescued him, having understood that he was a Roman. Like many modern officials, he prevaricates. He found out he was a Roman after he rescued him (Ac 22:24-27).
