People's Bible Notes for Acts 26:1


Ac 26:1 Paul's Address Before King Agrippa SUMMARY OF ACTS 26: Agrippa's Knowledge of the Law and the Jews. Paul's Early Career. The Great Doctrine of the Resurrection. His Hatred of Christ. The Manifestation of the Risen Lord to Paul Near Damascus. Paul's Preaching of the Suffering Christ. The Interruption of Festus and the Reply. Paul's Personal Appeal to Agrippa. The Decision That Paul Had Done Nothing Worthy of Bonds. Then Agrippa said unto Paul. Not Agrippa, but Festus had the authority in the province, but this meeting was arranged in order that Agrippa might investigate the case and assist Festus in formulating the charges. See Ac 25:26,27. Hence the king calls upon Paul to speak. Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. This great occasion (Ac 25:23) gave Paul a great opportunity. Instead of using it to defend himself, he preached the gospel to that great audience. His address (Ac 26:2-23) is a masterpiece.
