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.
