People's Bible Notes for Acts 23:34


Ac 23:34 The governor . . . asked of what province he was. Felix was governor of Judea under the proconsul of Syria. Had he found the prisoner to be of some other province under the proconsul, he would probably have turned him over to its governor, but when he found he was of Cilicia, a distant part of the empire, he retained him. Compare Lu 23:6,7.
