“I think myself happy, king Agrippa, because I shall answer for myself this day before thee touching all the things whereof I am accused of the Jews:”
King James Version (KJV)
26:2 King Agrippa - There is a peculiar force in thus addressing a person by name. Agrippa felt this.
Ac 26:2 I think myself happy, king Agrippa. Agrippa had been brought up in the Jewish religion, professed to be a steadfast guardian of the temple, and hence was well versed in all the Jewish customs. He was therefore competent to be a judge of an accusation of treason to the religion and law of their forefathers. Paul felt it a privilege to defend himself before one who was prepared to decide whether his preaching was contrary to Moses and the prophets, or, on the other hand, a fulfillment of them.
